Canyon Place is an innovative corporate office building in Fort Collins that houses the Global Engineering department of OtterBox. It showcases the Otter culture in the amenities and spirit of its interiors. Thoughtful design elements facilitate the collaborative environment of an ever-changing tech company, offering the ultimate flexibility for its work spaces. In a unique and unconventional approach, furniture guided the layouts of the walls, ceiling, lighting, and materials, enabling functionality to be fully integrated.
The design concept was based on tessellations that fit like a puzzle, similar to the way the engineers’ minds work. A linear footprint of the core and shell is juxtaposed with angular, geometric shapes. Areas for impromptu collaboration, a Ping-Pong conference table, walls and columns with chalkboard surfaces, and custom storage cubbies, concealed by magnetic back-painted glass sliding doors are a few of the unique interior features.
