Roundhouse was designed to make it easy for ideas and people to bounce around freely. Built on an Activity Based Working model, Roundhouse is more than just an open work space — it’s an ecosystem of adaptable, activity-based spaces and moveable furniture that makes it easy for you to work alone or with others.
Go from heads-down work mode at your desk, to rolling a whiteboard and seating into a common area for an impromptu brainstorm session, to making a private phone call in a meeting room, to socializing and eating lunch around a family-style kitchen table.
Working in a daylit environment improves health, wellness and productivity (and can lead to a better sleep!) so we optimized the design of our space for daylight. Our 17-foot high ceilings with floor to ceiling windows feature awesome downtown views and the flood of light will help you work better and be healthier. We also invested in energy-efficient, LED lighting because, after natural sunlight, they’re the next best thing.
From our moss wall to our natural wood tables to our Ficus Benjamina and Fiddle Leaf Fig trees, we were intentional in connecting Roundhouse to the natural environment. We also help you do your part in taking care of our environment. In addition to the standard waste and recycle bins, our kitchen features a digestive table. Designed by Amy Youngs, and built by Spruce Permaculture, the table integrates a vermicomposting system that (with the help of red wriggler worms) transforms organic waste into rich compost.
We care about our planet, which is why we’ve integrated innovative technologies into our space. Here are just some of the ways that we’ve reduced the carbon footprint of our building.
Eco-friendly building material
Our mezzanine floor structure is made of glued-laminated timber (Glulam), which is manufactured using less energy and fossil fuels than steel beams.
We used low to no VOC paints and sealants throughout our space. All glulam and plywood materials were left exposed with their natural finish.
Our floors are outfitted with linoleum (a naturally sustainable product manufactured by oxidizing linseed oil) and carpet made from 44% pre-consumer recycled content.
