Hastings Architecture Associates designed the offices of global tech company Microsoft, located in Nashville, Tennessee.  Located at oneC1TY, a vibrant new urban community in Nashville, Microsoft’s new 11,000-square-foot office establishes a new home in this multi-building development under construction.

Designers intended to help create physical spaces in each of the company’s 779 buildings that consistently embody its ethos and culture, while capturing the flavor of the environments and locales where each building is located. Comfortable, textured, stylish, and highly-functional seating creates a lounge environment while bistro-style seating and booths invite larger groups to congregate and work together creating an active environment .

“It feels like the great vibe you get walking into a cool club rather than walking into a sterile, formal corporate office that makes you uncomfortable,” says Microsoft Regional Workplace Strategist Brenda Ball. “It’s not a highly-curated look, but a good mix of technology and texture.”
