Amwins developed their first Service Center located in Charlotte, NC with the goal of creating a workplace environment that connected their community through culture and brand. Collaborative and flexible spaces were designed to encourage teamwork and support different types of gatherings. The local office wanted to integrate natural elements and materials into the space. Initially, Gensler planned to integrate a living wall or other expressions of biophilic design. Ultimately, they decided to go with Wolf-Gordon’s natural cork, which allowed them to create statement areas with a natural product.
