Third Place is a tenant lounge centrally located within the CityNorth campus to allow for a flexible environment for tenants to work as well as unwind. The space encourages informal networking with a collection of furniture for individual workspaces, lunches in private booths, brainstorming at large conference tables, and camaraderie in the sofas and armchairs.
One of the most anticipated features is a golf simulator with a variety of games and two swing bays, along with the 50-foot putting green. As one of the top trends in workplace amenities, the client knew they wanted this to be a key feature in the space. The design team also worked to make the space as open to the outdoors as possible by taking out the original storefront windows and replacing them with an Operable Nanawall System, allowing the space to feel like an outdoor patio. In addition, the design team incorporated a living green wall, flanked by an architectural brick feature and custom iron sculptures, set up as a focal point as tenants enter the space.
