How does your space drive productivity, collaboration and connectivity?
After making our former building “fit” for 30+ years with growth that ultimately had us occupying space on three separate floors, it became apparent that close proximity and regular interaction without barriers was critical to our continued growth and strength of a firm culture that fosters team effort and “open doors”. With comparable square footage, the new floor plan occupies one floor, is far more open, makes much better use of interior and perimeter space, and places emphasis on gathering places being functional and inviting.
What is the one thing that is unforgettable when someone walks through your space?
We modified the floor plan to transform several perimeter offices into the kitchen/break area that boasts floor to ceiling windows and is atypical of office use of perimeter space. The space is always filled with light, and a beautiful view of the city makes the area an inviting and popular place for people to congregate.
How does your space tell your company’s story and reflect its brand?
Our old offices told the story of many years of firm history, in a historical building that maintained functionality and décor from many years past. The new space is light and open, with room for people to gather and collaborate. The view from the perimeter gathering place reflects upon our old building on Massachusetts Avenue, as well as the first building that housed our firm when it was formed many years ago. We were able to maintain much of the original beautiful wood and structure in our current space, which was previously a respected law firm in Indianapolis and happened to be the former home of our current office administrator. This move and this space represents a move to the future of the firm with a reflection on the very important past. We are in a more open, collaborative space with room for growth and the ability to all work together without the barriers of floors and walls.
How does your space engage your employee base?
Transforming perimeter offices into a place for all employee use as a kitchen and break/gathering room reflects the value we place in every Rubin & Levin member. Interior work space for assistants is open and functional. The flow of the space encourages people to walk about, and the energy is positive. There is much to be said about loving your surroundings and this new office home is a shining example of the positive impact it can have on the people who live in it day to day.
