“Office Envy” highlights the best office workspaces
This past August iSoftStone was featured in 425 Business Magazine’s Office Envy Segment, a segment that highlights the best office workspaces in Seattle area.
iSoftStone’s Kirkland office offers spectacular views of Lake Washington, the Cascades, and the Seattle skyline. Chief Vision Officer Keith Miller gathered inspiration for the design from iSoftStone’s branded color scheme, tying in traditional Chinese elements in order to pay homage to the corporate headquarters in Beijing. In addition, Miller drew inspiration from the Puget Sound’s natural surroundings (rustic, sustainable materials metal, wood, and stone), images of computer mother boards, and abstract forms that communicate the power iSoftStone provides its clients to harness chaos with stable technology. Space planning, furnishings, finish selections, and lighting were assembled and specified to reflect these essential features. The result rocketed the Kirkland office’s growth into the thriving community you experience today.
Technical consulting can be a demanding industry intellectually, emotionally, and even physically. Time and time again project teams become engrossed in deliverables and deadlines. It’s easy to lose sight of the importance of enjoying what you do. iSoftStone strives to promote a lax, work hard, play hard culture that is “home base”, not “headquarters”, packed with fun people in blue jeans, not cheap suits. They are a family of energized professionals operating in global I.T. consulting in as cool an environment as possible. Employees lounge in plush oversized chairs, play heated rounds of Ping-Pong, Jenga and video games and at times, just hang out. During the summer months employees kick back, fire up the grill, and soak up the summer rays or head across the street to play beach volleyball in the park. If you have to work, there’s no better place to do so than here at “The Stone”.
