Auckland, New Zealand
Citrix is a networking solutions company that is transforming the way businesses connect, meet, learn and collaborate in the cloud era. HBO+EMTB’s design strategy for Citrix’s new research and development facility in Auckland was closely aligned with their position as a leading advocate of the flexible work environment. The design focuses on providing areas for collaboration between staff, as well as between staff and clients, while also providing productive workspace for employees.
The detailing throughout the work floor supports new workplace practices and ensures familiarity and comfort wherever work is taking place. Slick, minimal finishes in the boardroom and client meeting areas celebrate the technical finesse of Citrix. Patterned carpet is a feature as its geometric shapes contrast with the clean white walls, Caesarstone joinery and structured timber ceiling.
The design has creatively aligned the reception, work floor, boardroom and break out area to maximise the crossover between the employee and client facing areas, successfully implemented an inviting, flexible and innovative work environment which reflects the ethos of Citrix.
