Sojern

An Office With a Broader World View

APMA was hired by Sojern to design a tenant improvement that allowed consolidation of two different locations while maintaining flexibility for future growth. With 13 locations worldwide, the Omaha office wanted to showcase the city in subtle yet playful ways. A warm but modern reception greets employees and guests with a custom CNC graphic of an oversized map of the city over natural oak paneling. The remainder is an open office environment, with adjacent amenities for multiple departments, including private lounge areas and conference rooms (named after Omaha neighborhoods) of various sizes that serve as a place for collaboration, refuge and restoration.

An expansive break room continues the custom Omaha map graphic, this time in the form of a suspended wood ceiling “trellis” and includes a variety of seating options, including the ability to transform into a large meeting space for the entire staff.

“Omaha was the birthplace for our business and we’re very proud of our roots here. We continue to invest in recruiting talent from Omaha because we’ve had great success.”

— Brent Brummer
Vice President of Business Strategy at Sojern

The company’s signature orange is complemented throughout the space with cooler, deep blues and grays, natural oak and plants, and further enhanced with a custom vinyl graphic patterned film on all glass.

Welcome Callahan

June 19, 2020

Callahan will be joining us for the summer as an interior design intern. She will be entering her senior year at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln pursuing her degree in Interior Design. Remember The Sims video game series? Well, that game provided an initial spark that ignited Callahan’s passion for interior design. When she’s not in the studio, Callahan can be found working out, cooking, dining at her favorite restaurant The Blatt, walking her dogs, or binge-watching Netflix.
