Optoro’s co-founders Toby Moore and Adam Vitarello recently moved into their new 27,500 SF Metro Center office from their Chinatown space, both designed by Wingate Hughes. The new office, located at 1001 G Street, NW, reflects the company’s core values: vanguard, sustainability, transparency, and value. Identified early in the design process, these four pillars became the foundation for Optoro’s new office design.
Look inside Optoro’s stunning new space …
Optoro’s reception area includes two conference rooms (one pictured) with featured rolling doors highlighted with Lumicor panels to illuminate the lobby, mimic the look and feel of a warehouse, and offer abstracted transparancy. The sliding bar doors (pictured right) separate the office’s public and private space for events.
Optoro is committed to sustainability and ensured that this was reflected throughout the design process. All materials in the office use high recycled content, low-energy appliances, and LED light fixtures throughout the space. The Garden on the Wall preserved greenery overhead ceiling spans the open seating and gaming area.
Optoro’s pantry is a hub for lunch, meetings, happy hours and tech industry events. Armstrong’s tin ceiling visually defines this area from the neighboring conference room and lounge. The Cancos tiled backsplash further brightens the area. Optoro has Fat Tire, Compass Coffee, and Vivreau sparkling water on tap.
Optoro’s whitewashed reclaimed Stikwood conference room frames the room and flows with the spaces use of authentic, honest materials. A bank of seating to the left of this room provides additional workspace for flex employees.
The majority of Optoro’s 14 conference rooms are constructed to be partially transparent. The floating line of conference rooms in the middle of the office alternate open office space with glass conference rooms, offering continuous views and flow. They feature custom welded hollow metal frames, adding to the airy views that span the space.
Reclaimed Stikwood also frames the six phone booths that are evenly spaced througout the open floor plan. Each booth features different identifying black and white ROLLOUT wall coverings. Mohawk carpeting sections off the open work area from the Epoxy finished throughfare. Employee open benching features sit/stand desks.
The reception area’s light fixture by Tech Lighting adds light to the already bright elevator lobby. This lobby offers immediate access to the reception conference rooms and the gaming and lounge area.
