A Tour of Twitter’s Biophilic Toronto Office

Social network company Twitter recently hired architecture & interior design firm ACDO to design their new office in Toronto, Canada.

“Located in the trendy King West neighbourhood, the new space embodies Twitter’s key attributes: bold, electric, and focused on creating instant connections amongst employees and collaborators.

Within the 3,400 sq ft. reception and commons, intimate lounge seating groups are placed at the perimeter, to promote a dynamic environment where cross-collaboration and candid conversations are encouraged. Here, ACDO have selected key furniture pieces including the Expo 67 Chair; originally designed for the World Fair in Montreal, and the Chiara Lounge Chairs from Winnipeg-based EQ3.

A palette of white-washed oak and preserved plants was used to represent the soothing effect of Canada’s nature and incorporate biophilic elements that promote and enhance wellness. Jewel-toned accents enhance the energy of the space. To help bring a local vibe to the space world renowned artist studio Moss and Lam created feature artworks that include Toronto landmarks and natural elements that embody the spirit of the City, along with framed works that visually portray collaboration,” says ACDO.
