With an eye to the future and a desire to rebuke the status quo agency design, the design team developed an open office neighborhood concept. In the resulting design, all staff members have access to daylighting, views to the Gulch neighborhood, and the rolling hills of Tennessee. Each neighborhood is organized as a communal space intended to foster collaboration and impromptu conversation.
In addition to conference rooms, living room-inspired lounges offer a vibe-y area for casual meeting and conversation. Adjacent gaming areas enhance the social atmosphere. Designed for flexibility, lounge spaces can easily be converted into agent offices as WME grows.
A two-story gathering stair establishes a vertical connection and captures the duality of WME as both an internal space for meeting and learning, and a performance and party venue complete with framed views of the Nashville skyline. The 14th floor café serves as an employee eating area by day and a bar and serving area for parties and events.
