Wayfair

Wayfair

TRIA’s completed phase VII follows previous Phases I-III by Lucianna Lucarelli at prior firm. Wayfair relocated and expanded from their previous space on Huntington Avenue to their current space at Four Copley Place, which now serves as their global headquarters. Phase VII was a continuation of this expansion, with collaboration and interaction acting as key design criteria. There are no individual offices for employees. Interconnecting stairs, in conjunction with kitchenettes and cafeterias dispersed throughout the floors and towers, encourage employees to move through the space and engage with their peers. The other key criteria was to use the space to showcase Wayfair’s furniture and home goods. Collaboration spaces are themed and designed with Wayfair products in mind and help break up large floor plates. In addition, these spaces help serve as wayfinding in an increasingly growing space. Throughout the phases it has been necessary to remain consistent with the design while keeping pace with modern design and creating a fun and flexible work environment for Wayfair’s employees.
