A Look Inside Flight Centre’s New Vancouver Office
Flight Centre, a travel company that helps people find cheaper flights, recently hired architecture and interior design firms figure3, SSDG Interiors to design their new office in Vancouver, Canada.
“The new office space is open, modern, bright and fun, with an eclectic inspiration of world travel. Inviting one to explore, zones were created throughout the space that tell a story of travel, through custom birds-eye view imagery of international landmarks made into intriguing patterns. Individual work spaces blend with common areas and gathering spaces, and small retreats are dispersed across the office which encourage collaboration and informal meetings – all to accommodate choice and people’s different work styles. A games room and kitchen lounge (with beer taps and wine fridges) also offer environments to socialize, foster relationships and to host guests, all with wayfinding graphics to make navigation throughout the office simple and fun. The boardroom and reception area include locally sourced wood finishes to warm up the space, as well as locally sourced greenery. figure3 designed a space that breathed new vibrancy and balance into Flight Centre’s culture of fun and healthy social connection. The new space offers a forward-thinking work experience that affords the opportunities their staff had been looking for to do their jobs well, while enjoying themselves in an inspiring space,” says figure3
