“Gensler is a leader in Active Design in the workplace and they show what can be done by the design of their own offices. The images of staff members scooting and biking around the building are inspiring!” said David Burney.
Recognizing that health risks can be diverted through simple design solutions, Gensler intentionally designed its Newport Beach office to optimize the likelihood individuals actively moving around the space. The design team used Active Design principles to promote transparency within the surrounding community, collaboration and innovation among staff, and new modes of working.
To improve individual health, Gensler launched a “Healthy Workplace Initiative” to activate their offices around the world.
