KS Engineers

Newark, New Jersey

Ware Malcomb provided interior architecture and design services for the relocation of KS Engineer’s 30,000 square foot office. The project was designed to provide a welcoming, hospitable environment for clients and consultants, unify KSE employees and enable streamlined communication. A significant objective of the project was to help KSE bridge the gap between different levels of staff and help diverse departments work seamlessly together. The design also focused on appealing to a multigenerational workforce to help recruit and retain talent.

The new space includes a board room and reception area at the entry, huddle rooms, phone booths, a café with a virtual golf and gaming area, a wellness/meditation room and a library/lounge. To allow for better cross-training of divisions, select departments were positioned adjacent to one another. All interior offices have adjacent huddle rooms to enable collaboration. The open office areas are interspersed with plan tables with storage that could be used for heads down plan review sessions and impromptu collaboration. The fresh aesthetic includes graphics based on images of past projects, designed by KSE’s in-house graphics team and a color palette that represents the blues in the KSE branding and other complementing colors throughout the space to deliver a very modern and inviting vibe.
