2018 Best of Design Award for Interior — Workplace: Expensify Headquarters
Expensify’s new headquarters is lodged in Portland’s National Landmark First National Bank. ZGF Architects collaborated with architectural metal design studio Pure+FreeForm to develop a design concept that reflects the company’s flexible work ethos. Office spaces are spread throughout the historic building’s four-story Art Deco atrium. Where seating is not assigned, conference rooms cannot be reserved, and employees choose workspaces depending on their current task or mood. A pair of adjacent conference rooms are suspended above the bank building’s main entrance, connected by an oak and steel monumental staircase. Other spaces include a speakeasy salon, a midcentury boardroom, a living room area, and a custom 41-foot- long communal table.
