Employees are drawn to the whimsical amenity-centric space which features a glamping tent, hidden speakeasy, and greenhouse space. Murals and accessories for the styling of the space were sourced from multiple minority and LGBTQIA+ owned businesses.

The transition between hybrid and in-person collaboration is supported by a robust tech set up, underscoring the balance between individual effort and collaboration. The right mix of spaces bolsters creativity, and an ambient, inclusive sense of belonging.
