MetaMetrics® is an educational measurement and research organization with the vision to make test scores more actionable by connecting assessments to instruction. Partnering with state departments of education, publishers and education companies, MetaMetrics has a vision of all students having the proper tools that measure and support them on their path to college and career readiness.
MetaMetrics was relocating their US headquarters to a new up-and-coming space in the Durham area. Introduced by Newmark, Office Revolution was brought on board with their employee-centric design. The company wanted to move away from private offices and needed their new space to be inviting, comfortable and flexible. Individual work areas were furnished with Teknion Expansion Cityline height-adjustable workstations, providing optimal ergonomics and creating areas that allow people to move, gather and disperse when privacy and focus are desired.
Open areas were furnished with a multitude of seating options from Teknion and Studio TK. Zones soft seating in bright patterns separate and create distinct meeting areas with its mix of low-back and backless units, and varying direction. Studio TK Fractals Nook and Havn seating add bold, innovative options and with high back designs that create a degree of privacy.
The smooth collaboration with Alliance Architecture resulted in a newly furnished space optimized for employees’ needs. Focusing on the quality and flexibility of the space we helped transform their office into a range of new and agile working spaces.
