INNOVATIVE OFFICE Los Angeles

HAWKE MEDIA Industry Marketing Location Los Angeles Scope 26,000 sq. ft. Architect Boto Design Architects Floors 1 Notable Features • 10 “phone booths” allow employees to have privacy for calls • “Neighborhood” concept of organization, where teams are clustered and each manager faces their team • Elevated central platform that serves as a stage for performances and announcements • Two break rooms and a private outdoor patio for downtime

At first, digital marketing company Hawke Media wanted an open/creative office space, but after careful consideration, realized a more flexible layout would allow for creative flow, as well as private meetings and phone calls. The solution was to create clusters of open space and a handful of executive offices around the perimeter and at the core. While each employee has their own desk, a slew of other spaces are available, from a bean bag lounge chair to outside on the private patio.
