Rapt Studio has designed the new offices of genealogy company Ancestry located in Lehi, Utah. Ancestry can take any kind of data, and translate it into stories of human connection. At the entry point to the building, there’s a multi-colored, multi-dimensional graphic installation in the lobby. The different colors represent different ancestries of various populations, like you might see in a map showing migrations over time. It’s one of many examples of the link between family and global genealogy, including break areas and family rooms that serve as central, collaborative spaces on each floor. The cafe is a nod to “Sunday dinner at Grandma’s house,” and includes a long, communal table beside a pizza oven, surrounded by decorative plates from around the world. Ancestry goes beyond connecting you to a long-lost relative.
