The goal was to create a highly-functional design that would accommodate the immediate needs of Recollective Inc.’s current and growing workforce. The 10,000 ft² modern office includes an open reception area, lounge, cafeteria, 52 individual workstations, a large high-tech conference room, four meeting rooms, and five private offices. 

The Lake Partnership Inc., a local general contractor and project management company, engaged Figurr Architects Collective for the design.This project achieved design excellence through a highly collaborative relationship between the tenant and contractor.

The World Exchange Plaza’s unique geometry posed some design challenges in creating a unified space, which called for significant attention to detail during the design process.

The contractor understood the importance of the design intent and worked with the construction team to ensure that every detail of the project was subject to the highest standards.

As a result of the global pandemic and the volatility of construction market economics, the project required a cost savings approach during the construction phase. The contractor worked closely with the architect and tenant to implement creative construction solutions that maintained the design intent and kept the project on time and budget.
