Introduction

Ten years ago we were given the opportunity to design the offices for Amata, a shared office space firm with clear goals and the contagious excitement of a new venture. Ten years later, we were brought back to renovate the space to meet the needs of the ever-evolving workplace.

The word "evolving" is what keeps us engaged and moving forward. Our clients at Amata are smart entrepreneurs and understand the new workplace. Their mission is to provide “the best office solution to fit your business needs; your company culture; and your budget; both for today and a year from now."

Keeping in mind Amata's mission, we designed a vibrant office to include activity-based workspaces, collaboration rooms, huddle rooms and quiet rooms to accommodate varying work styles. Technology is embraced through the space, providing and encouraging tenant mobility, collaboration and networking.

Furniture is key to a productive workplace environment. Using the team approach, JDJ Architects connected with furniture manufacturers and dealers to carefully select furniture styles and fabrics to enhance the space and create a cohesive look that contributes to the well-being and comfort of the tenants. The final result conveys a relaxed yet sophisticated style.
