Braintree Inc. powers online and mobile payments for many of the world’s fastest-growing merchants. Partners by Design and Braintree have been working together since building their space in 2012 at 111 Canal Street. Moving to a larger floor plate at the Merchandise Mart provided some great design opportunities. Much of the floor plan is devoted to collaboration and meeting spaces and new workplace standards implemented height adjustable desks at every station.

Team areas, focus areas, and individual workspaces were maintained with destinations to drive people across the floor: the library, atrium, game room, tree house lounge, coffee house, backyard, etc.  A game room/kitchen area, partitioned by see-through garage doors, with accouterments such as ping-pong, foosball, video games, and hula hoops.
