Trend Micro - Austin
Square Footage: 75,000
As a global leader in IT security, Trend Micro develops innovative security solutions for businesses and consumers to exchange digital information. We guided the transformation of the company’s workplace strategy effort, which has led to a long-standing relationship and projects in Dallas, Minneapolis, New Jersey, Miami, San Jose, and Austin.
In order to maximize the value of their acquisition of a HP division, Trend Micro called upon us to design a softly branded, open workspace that could facilitate the merge of two company cultures and open members of each team up to interaction and collaboration. The new space looks and feels like Trend Micro’s other locations, while also integrating feedback from the new employees to ensure their former corporate culture was not lost in the design. Rooted in Trend Micro’s culture of collaboration, the office boasts a monumental staircase that connects all three levels together in a way that is both sculptural and functional. As the main focal point for vertical circulation, the staircase offers multiple opportunities for employee interaction. We also incorporated a platform stage, which allows approximately 300 people to congregate for office-wide meetings.
