Toyota Financial Services Experience Center EastAlpharetta, Georgia
Toyota Financial Services East was designed to enhance the company culture and support both employee and business objectives. Thoughtful space planning, natural daylighting and views throughout the office, and sophisticated lighting solutions were incorporated into the design. Creating a connection between people and nature – known as biophilic design – was imperative. A green biophilia wall covers 28% of the first-floor lobby wall, and two 18-foot-long biophilia walls, comprised of 70% wood pieces and 30% greenery, are found on the second and third floors. Preserved moss on accent walls are visible across all floors, and a series of five nature-inspired art pieces are located throughout the office space in high-visibility areas.
Our in-house branding team designed a branded environment, signage and custom graphics with the main design objective to increase interconnectivity between floors to enhance collaboration. An open, sculptural staircase crafted of sustainable materials serves as the main connection between the levels. Each floor has a dedicated color scheme that gives identity to each team and is uniquely designed according to the necessities of the end users. The biophilic design was merged within the branded environment to foster positive emotions, mental restoration, visual comfort, creativity and productivity, stress reduction and overall well-being.
Ware Malcomb worked closely with TFS and Verde, the sustainability consultant, to carefully select new, innovative, and sustainable materials that reduce the concentration of chemical contaminants and improve air quality and human health. The project achieved a LEED v4 ID+C: Commercial Interiors certification.
