In February 2016, Perkins+Will’s Minneapolis office moved into our new studio, fondly referred to as studioIDS. It offers 100% unassigned seating, a variety of work settings, and radiates the simplicity, thoughtfulness, and authenticity of our organizational purpose. Located in the iconic IDS Center in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, studioIDS was informed by our workplace mobility pilot program —Mobileapolis—that offered employees flexibility over where and how they work. A year after our move into the new space, we reflect on our journey, look at our post-occupancy metrics, applaud our successes, and identify further areas of opportunity and innovation in our new home.
