The space was designed with hybrid working models in mind.

The new office was designed by VergesRome Architects. It features privacy booths and quiet workspaces, open areas for meetings and well-lit spaces with floor-to-ceiling whiteboards and comfortable furniture to inspire creative ideas during brainstorming and collaboration. “Learning and development rooms” join “socialization hubs” to round out the modern approach to office space.
