Square Footage: 16,778
Located in Plano’s Legacy West development, Toyota Connected is a start-up technology division of Toyota Motors that seeks to improve automobile safety by using smart technology to eliminate driving hazards. Because Toyota Connected competes with local technology firms for top talent, its new workspace reflects forward-thinking culture, seamlessly integrates technology, and is a highly desirable workplace destination. In addition to office workspace, Toyota Connected includes a working lab with simulators to test technology and showcase innovations to potential investors and collaborators.
Views are maximized through expansive use of glass, and a balcony is accessible for staff enjoyment and outside entertaining. Perkins+Will’s interior designers and branded environments experts collaborated to further evolve Toyota Connected as a sub-brand of Toyota Motors, infusing brand into the space through form, dimension, and experience. Inspired by Toyota Connected’s logo, the visual language of squares in the office space represents windows into humanity that frame technology, data, nature, and people.
