A concrete volume acts as a phone booth as well as a beacon into the "Red Room"
“It's probably one of the only offices ever built that works as well for introverts as it does for extroverts".
A Grounding Place
This build is structured around the idea of ‘Built By Us’. This idea expresses the need for the space to be an empty canvas which acts as the backdrop for interactions between Shopify employees and collaborators. And of course, we’re representing Toronto through local partnerships with artists and makers through an infusion of Toronto within the build itself.
For this project, we’re taking the lessons we’ve learned from our past Shopify builds and building upon them to create something great. As always, we’ve designed flexible areas and spaces suited for introverts and extroverts.
A commercial kitchen & servery is available to Shopifolk all day, every day.
A power-adapted and uber comfortable work nook is tucked under the custom staircase beside the reception area.
