Every company has a distinct personality. Abacus Planning Group is collaborative, focused, adaptable, with a hint of playfulness. Traits that come through beautifully in its comfortable, high-performance, newly-expanded workspace. Designed by Quackenbush Architects + Planners and executed by Buchanan Construction, the central theme is connectivity. Team members work in an open format with the option of stepping into a “phone booth” — made of etched glass to allow for maximum natural light — for private conversations. These same glass panels define the conference rooms. A team stadium room, which can be configured for any purpose — guest speakers, training sessions, group huddles, lunches — is the heart of the space. For maximum flexibility, all furnishings are moveable. Relaxing neutral shades, subtle patterns and textures, surprise pops of colors like Abacus orange, and feature spots for pieces from the firm’s impressive art collection set the visual tone. This expansion feels good, works hard, and achieves the desired goal of being timely, not trendy.
