While Trevali’s values of teamwork and vision led them to be known as a thought leader in its industry, their workspace didn’t meet that reputation. Its traditional office layout did not scream innovation, being home to many enclosed private offices and lacking any areas that encouraged collaboration. The challenge was to create a functional space that portrayed the company’s vision and culture.
Ditching the traditional office layout to bring a teamwork-first culture to life
Aura maximized every inch of office space by removing perimeter offices and transitioning all staff to workstations in the core. We added in phone booths, small meeting rooms, and focus spaces, while incorporating elements like hanging plant lights, graphics on the walls and floors, and a large 12-foot multipurpose table in the kitchen area. Trevali’s office now better represents its interactive culture. With staff at all levels colliding in open and interactive spaces, the company is finally able to see its teamwork-driven culture in action while it works towards its goals.
