Seattle, WA. This 18,000 sf workplace was designed to boost PopCap's brand and visual identity as well as to nudge their software engineers out of their shell to “talk, share, and play with others.” Semi-open team areas define each floor plate while breakout spaces promote collaboration between design departments. Editing suites act as a visual anchor in the product development department. Anecdotal stories and client surveys indicate teams love the open environment and the sacrifice of personal workspace is counterbalanced strongly by access to common collaboration spaces. The new space has proved an asset in recruiting efforts.
