CCC Intelligent Solution’s new headquarters was designed to support the tech leader’s growth and foster the company’s strong culture of innovation and collaboration. The space includes an eye-catching radiused stairwell that connects the ninth-floor reception space to the eighth-floor town hall and customer experience area. On the eighth floor, visibility into the NXT lab provides a view into the technology that helps to power CCC’s advanced AI solutions, and open work areas lend a neighborhood vibe to the space. CCC’s customer experience area features a collaborative lounge space, breakout niches and booths, lit branding, and wood wall and ceiling coverings.
Delivering 140,000+ seamlessly across 3 floors was no easy feat, however, our architectural design team focuses on a layering of pathways that intersect, connect, and guide users throughout CCC’s three floors. The space embodies a level of fluidity with open office environments that encourage collaboration across teams and access to technology – all with an intent to promote innovation.
These intended pathways were further enforced by various finish transitions, flooring being a key design feature. Wood and concrete flooring are used in circulation, cueing people to their intended destinations. Along the main circulation pathways are neighborhoods delineated by carpet districts, enforcing a sense of community in each department. Noteworthy areas like chill zones and phone nooks were elevated by implementing bold, colored carpet as an accent. The flooring design approach as a whole is an intuitive way to meander through the space, arrive at your destination, and promote connection.
