Convergent Wealth Advisors, an elite investment advisory company, engaged OPX to create a signature headquarters in the suburbs of Washington, DC. The company sought to redefine its work environment from a conventional drywall box and isolated cubical village, into a highly energized, collaborative and transparent work space.
Convergent’s core values, specifically their commitment to partnering and teamwork, were keystones in the conceptual design and planning elements. Showcasing an open and transparent environment was a fundamental message to clients and employees alike.
The ever-changing financial markets require employees to have immediate access to information and in-house expertise. Therefore, the use of glass volumes to create, divide and form space provide appropriate acoustical privacy yet allow employees to have visual access to their teams. Additionally, the ability for spaces to adapt and foster employee engagement and idea sharing are top design attributes. Conference spaces include a formal boardroom, multi-purpose rooms, a casual “Living Room” as well as internal huddle rooms. The mix of spaces supports a wide range of gatherings for one-on-one, impromptu meetings, relaxed client briefings, as well as office wide staff summits. Further, the design blends high-tech tools, hospitality comfort and food service via the adjacent catering kitchen. In contrast, the multi-purpose rooms transform smaller, side-by-side meeting spaces into a single large room for staff gatherings.
