We look forward to seeing you at our first installment of Cocktails & Conversations of 2020 hosted by Hoefer Wysocki and encompas at the newly designed headquarters of Wellsky. 

Project Overview:

WellSky develops software solutions for some of the nation’s largest healthcare systems, agencies, and organizations to help them drive down costs and meet increasing demand for healthcare. Expecting to nearly double its workforce within the next year, WellSky relocated its corporate headquarters to CityPlace, a new $400 million, amenity-rich, mixed-use development, also designed by Hoefer Wysocki. The move presented an opportunity to create a space that aligns with the company’s brand identity, promoting a culture of innovation, collaboration and industry leadership.

Flexibility was an essential design element for this rapidly growing company. Movable wall systems are used in areas likely to be reconfigured to accommodate anticipated growth and cater to a variety of professionals and their work styles. Sit-stand desks and informal collaboration lounges with full-height writable surfaces are integrated into the open office environment. Some areas are more noise tolerant, such as the Scrum zones, where distributed teams gather to collaborate, while other areas allow quiet, focused work. Lounges and breakrooms can be reconfigured on the fly for large-group events. Offices and small conference rooms are also interchangeable and easily reconfigured to accommodate future uses. Four separate balconies extend from conference and break rooms, inviting a connection with the outdoors.

WellSky’s brand design principles – Care, Warmth, Intelligence and Precision – informed the interior design’s material selection and color palette. Material attributes centered on transparency, modularity, and lightness accented by use of unexpected combinations and dynamic angles to create movement and energy. The color palette features warm, neutral tones on the executive floor complemented by clean, cool tones with pops of color on the engineering floor to inspire, resulting in an energizing and dynamic creation zone.
