Hip New Digs

Distributed between the top two floors of the historic Ashton Building in Omaha’s Millwork District, this 400-person technology-focused workplace is organized for various working styles. New building elements were designed to create a distinction from old, offering a strong counterpoint to the rich existing architecture. Each area was thoughtfully designed as a backdrop to highlight the company’s personality alongside the existing architecture, while artfully incorporating branding and color throughout.

Reinforcing the notion of transparency, the stair and entry pivot door utilize perforated voids to emphasize views, color, and lightness. We partnered with a custom fabricator to produce renderings and physical mockups to ensure the openness achieved the desired look and feel.

WP Engine Feature Stair

At the heart of the space is the central feature stair and skylight that allows natural light and transparency across floors and also encourages creative collisions to occur.

WP Engine is organized for various work styles and employee needs. Ranging from phone booths for quiet work, conference rooms for hybrid meetings, large collaborations spaces for all-staff events, and open offices organized into neighborhoods, the varied work environments offer diversity in scale, visibility, and activity.
