The Workplace of the Future

A well-designed workplace is critical to attract A-players and build at first-class culture. The traditional open-space plan no longer suits the need of innovative companies, so what does tomorrow’s work environment look like? An award-winning designer of the new Uber, Cisco, and Yelp offices, Primo Orpilla, shares his secret for bringing creativity, productivity, and culture into the work space.

A leader in the field of “democratic design,” Orpilla’s expansive, open-plan environments -which stress sustainability, accessibility and careful coordination of function and form, have become a signature look for some of the West Coast’s most forward-thinking tech innovators.
