Kilpatrick Townsend Community Hub
Cooper Carry was again contracted by Kilpatrick Townsend Stockton to renovate their 3,148 SF library space in their Atlanta Office. The existing library was converted into a flexible “community hub,” and provided an environment where Kilpatrick’s employees could gather. The basis for the project was to begin to foster more collaboration among colleagues in a working environment that did not previously have a dedicated space for it to happen organically. The design included an adjacent “work café” area offering premium, high-end coffee and provides both open and semi-private work spaces for individuals or groups to take their work into a different and unique environment from those offered on their current floors. Additionally, the Cooper Carry team created a series of rooms which each provide its own character and opportunities for working, meeting, or the chance to unwind. Amenities of the space include a reading space, an integrated news ticker and TV, colorful collaborative work spaces, lounge area, and standing height tables for impromptu meetings. In addition to the open, collaborative spaces, a series of individual “work pods” complete with a footrest, lamp, and power were included to perform more focused work, or to provide a hoteling space. Adjacent to this focus area are several enclosed glass “huddle rooms” for quiet individual work, or a small two person collaboration session which include dedicated video conference capabilities.
