GC Workplace Co-Working Project

Project Overview

One of the challenges in design is being able to harness and then communicate a physical manifestation of some intangible ideals. Comfort. Flow. Activity. Calm. Vitality. It’s what makes these sorts of projects so valuable.

We  were lucky enough to work with Public Services and Procurement Canada on a large scale functional program called GC Workplace. It’s an incredible initiative aiming to provide more flexibility with where and how staff work. The enterprise provides unassigned work environments for Federal Government workers.

Imagine a host of drop-in office locations close to employees’ homes that facilitate telework.
Of course, all the principles can be applied to non-government functionality, too.

True to the requirements of modern work, there are allocated spaces for both heads-down and collaborative group work. The conceptual design options that burst forth were manifested in renderings we developed using Revit (highly dextrous building information modelling software) that integrated biophilic design, exposed ceilings and a strategic use of colour blocking.

We were ecstatic with the results - a vibrant, dynamic office ecosystem.

If you are looking for a dynamic space - high ceilings, variety in modern lighting, bold colours, cozy corners, complete with biophilic elements – the GC Co-working Workplace is where you want to be. LWG’s goal was to create an inviting space where staff will get excited to come into the office. – Melanie Tracey
