by April Bohnert
March 14, 2018

The office: your home away from home. For decades, the office space was treated as little more than a place to do work — a sea of cubicles and closed office doors. But today’s companies have different ideas about what an office should be. They’re creating spaces that inspire creativity, encourage collaboration and put the “fun” in “functional.”

From vibrant artwork to proudly displayed products, these artsy tech offices are sure to give you some serious office envy.

“Our design was inspired by the architecture and character of the building and nearby Art Museum,” said CEO David Levin. “We left the floor to ceiling glass unobstructed to create a bright, open, collaborative workspace. The office has over sixty spots and sunlit open spaces where employees can work away from their desks. Because health and wellness is core to our culture, we also have an on-site gym where we host daily, free fitness classes.”

We wanted to make sure we celebrated the state of Colorado as a part of our space.”

What inspired the design of your office?

“We wanted to make sure we celebrated the state of Colorado as a part of our space,” said Amy Holland, VP of platform operations. “The mural of the mountains in our community room, the gondola from Keystone and the graffiti from local artists are all reflections of that. Keeping as much natural light was also really important. We made sure that all of the offices and the majority of the conference rooms were internal so that our associates were near the windows. The furniture was also key. Lots of our associates prefer standing desks, so we made sure that was part of our buildout.”



What's the coolest feature in your office?

“There’s the obvious gondola, but the mural in our community space was made by one of our employees. It’s gorgeous by itself, but what makes it special is that it’s made of up song lyrics and favorite quotes from our associates around the globe,” Holland said.
