FCA Designs New Liberty Property Trust Headquarters

Francis Cauffman Architects (FCA) recently designed the new Liberty Property Trust headquarters, an office geared to fit a variety of workstyles. To determine what the Liberty Property Trust team wanted in their new home, FCA conducted workplace surveys, focus groups, and tours with executive leadership. The results indicated a preference for an open floor plan, benching systems, breakout areas, and conference rooms that, together, created a productive and efficient workspace. By focusing on what employees want, FCA was able to produce an environment that had a space for every type of employee workstyle.

One of the key areas in the office is the 'Town Center,' which replaces the traditional office kitchen and provides a zone for employees to eat, collaborate, or relax. A custom shuffleboard offers the opportunity to bond with coworkers and plays into Liberty Property Trust's goal of fostering a creative and collaborative environment.

Though the layout doesn't include private offices, FCA integrated an array of small breakaway areas, informal lounges and meeting rooms for working, collaboration, discussion, or heads-down work. This diverse offering of spaces is in line with a more holistic approach to design, where one size certainly does not fit all.
