A Tour of GLG’s Sleek Austin Office
GLG, the world’s largest expert platform that connects its clients with top professionals from around the world, recently hired Clive Wilkinson Architects to design their new office located in the downtown of Austin, Texas.
“GLG’s mission is to transform the way the world’s top professionals share expertise and learn while also being one of the best places to work. Connectivity, opportunities for sharing, and transparency were essential to their company needs. In order to connect the large working community and avoid creating silos, CWa proposed cutting a large atrium and a staircase connecting the two floors. White expanded metal mesh guardrails fold down to the plaza ceiling, pulling light into the space while also providing optimal visibility between the floors. Following the successful installation of Activity Based Working at their Global Headquarters in New York, CWa repurposed this mobile framework for the Austin office. The ABW method of working empowers users by supporting a variety of working styles. By relinquishing corner offices and cubicles, the working environment gains efficiency and allow for additional communal spaces such as the barista bar and plaza. Each of the four neighborhoods, or business groups, are equipped with the tools needed to support daily tasks. This collaborative approach makes for a more creative and comfortable working environment, which will support GLG Austin in cultivating their learning platform internally and externally for clients’ needs”, said Clive Wilkinson Architects
