Executive private offices, open office workspaces, huddle rooms, variously sized enclosed and open meeting spaces


Gathering both formally and informally was a main desire for RIDC in their new office. The existing office did not have many spaces to meet and they often had to gather offsite to host large office events. Along with traditional meeting spaces we designed a large flexible kitchen area that also doubled as the main open collaboration space of the office. This space was tucked in a corner away from the heads down areas of the office to avoid visual and noise disturbances. This area has an iconic view of the city and even has views across to the other side of the office through the iconic rounded aluminum exterior windows.


The existing office had the main boardroom right off of the elevator corridor with large windows without privacy features. This did not offer privacy or a sense of formality that the boardroom of a non-profit requires. RIDC wanted the main boardroom to have a balance of privacy and views into the space so R3a designed a custom wood slat wall that extended from the reception desk in front of the boardroom. This allowed the office staff to move freely around behind the scenes while allowing visitors waiting in the reception area to get a peak of what is going on.
