As PayPal’s credit division grew outside of Baltimore, they needed to offer a workspace with a strong sense of place to help with talent retention. The suburban location was losing employees to the urban amenities and culture that downtown offices were able to provide. The design team collaborated with the project architects to design an easily navigable workspace around a core - built from materials which reflect a downtown urban industrial aesthetic. The team engaged end users to help influence their spaces inspired by Baltimore neighborhoods and landmarks, providing clear identities, sense of place, and ownership of the space for each user group. Local imagery blends with printed and physical urban textures to complement the industrial impression and provide unique artwork throughout the workspace. The team curated flooring colors, patterns and interior finishes to patterns within artwork to provide holistic spatial design experiences.
