M+M Creative Studio Named the Award Winner of the 2016 International Space Design Award IDEA-TOPS for ‘The Best Office Design Award’


Las Vegas, United States, 2017-01-03 –

Architectural and interior design firm M+M Creative Studio has been honored by the 2016 International Space Design Award, IDEA-TOPS as the winner of “The Best Office Design Award” (awarded December 6, 2016 in Shenzhen, China) for its work on the new corporate headquarters of car shopping company Edmunds.com in Santa Monica, California, USA.  The Edmunds.com Headquarters commercial office space was recognized as the winner in this category from over 650+ entrants from around the globe by IDEA-TOPS, which honors and recognizes the best design in the disciplines of architecture, interior design, graphic design, art installation, urban design with the goal of advancing the appreciation of architecture and design worldwide.

 

“Our team is humbled to be singled out among this extraordinary collection of international designers and be bestowed this honor in recognition of the combined value and design we contributed to our client” said M+M Creative Studio CEO Chris Mitchell. “The relationship that we developed with our client allowed us to strive for something that was certainly outside the standard kit of design parts and we knew we had built something one-of-a-kind when we saw multiple groups of people effortlessly using the space to create and energize their own brand of corporate culture.”

 

With two floors and outdoor space totaling 143,000 square feet, Edmunds’ “EdQuarters” is an inventive space that weaves together a cross-section of tech and automotive-themed designs. The first floor is anchored and highlighted by two Corvettes mounted and turning in unison above the mirror-polished stainless steel reception desk. Other design features on the first floor include a long and elegant coffee bar where employees are encouraged to gather and interact, a mosaic of 2,472 ‘Matchbox’ cars assembled to form Edmunds’ logo, and a 1948 Cadillac that has been converted into a beer tap and bar. The bulk of the second floor is comprised of a plank-desking system that allows flexibility in linear feet per person, as well as additional smaller meeting rooms dispersed throughout and miscellaneous programmatic requirements such as quiet rooms (‘Rest Stops’) and an IT service desk (the ‘Pit Stop’). Meanwhile, a 10,000 square-foot exterior central atrium offers both larger social and more intimate spaces connected to the adjacent interior spaces with over 130 linear feet of retractable glass doors. Inside the atrium itself, the multiple 15’ long raised linear planters, gurgling water features and in-ground LED lighting run in parallel lanes like cars seen from above passing on a super-sized highway.

 

“We came to M+M Creative Studio with a grand vision of a facility that would stand out as an icon of Los Angeles’ Silicon Beach tech community,” said Edmunds.com CEO Avi Steinlauf. “But more importantly, we wanted a space where we could focus on the needs of our employees first. Chris, Sandra and their team successfully delivered a uniquely vibrant environment where our people can freely collaborate, think and innovate.”
