SimplePractice creates software for health and wellness professionals to manage their businesses. HLW helped to design a space that supported their functional requirements and provided an environment that would cater to the health and wellness of their employees. Thoughtful planning was required to meet diverse requirements; from customer service staff who rely on frequent collaboration to engineers whose work necessitates a more solitary focus. Specialty spaces include a large, open café, a wood-framed library, a meditation room, and a studio dedicated to content creation. Built spaces were pulled away from the perimeter to take advantage of abundant natural daylight and direct views of the surrounding treetops. Our design incorporates a neutral and complimentary palette to highlight biophilia and greenery. Existing raw concrete surfaces on the floors, walls, and columns are mixed with wood accents to incorporate texture and warmth while softer materials balance acoustic and privacy needs to create an overall feeling of calm and openness.
