Entry Description

Argonaut, an innovative advertising agency, was in sea search of a new home to support their rapid growth. With creativity as its driving force, their new headquarters nee needed to embody the same spirit and soul embedded in its creative process. Such a space was found the historic Av Avalon Ballroom. The 25,000sf building was carefully restored to its original splendor while offering work and social spaces that reflect Argonaut's brand and creative work style. In the main ballroom, a custom-designed desking system extends from a raised platform stage resembling catwalks. Argonaut practices "free addressing" - encouraging unrestricted choice of work settings where staff can be most creative. Interspersed around the space are flexible and casual idea-generating spaces. An original mezzanine overlooks the ballroom's activity and houses the boardroom and meeting rooms. The ground level workspace is devoted to the production teams, featuring a custom-desking system, lounges, meeting areas, and a an art gallery.
