The non-traditional workspace at Vidyard’s Queen St N location, was featured in digital’s Killer Spaces series. The article highlights how it was designed with the employees in mind and how having more than just a typical desk is important for collaboration and creativity.
“Vidyard’s 40,000-square-foot office is the last brick-and-beam space in Kitchener’s core. In 1925, the building opened as Goudies Department Store, a retail pillar in the Kitchener community that closed in the late 80s. Despite major renovations—including a third-floor glass atrium—the three-storey space comes with historical charm: soaring ceilings, original brick walls, hardwood floors, and exposed structural beams. The addition of large windows, skylights, a rooftop patio, and an unconventional foam pit brought the heritage space into the 21st century.” borndigital.com
“Vidyard’s mix of practical and non-traditional workspaces was designed specifically with the needs (and wants) of their employees in mind. On the first floor, free-style swinging benches and tables, a couch corner, and open-concept workspaces are all areas of collaboration meant to encourage team dialogue. Dedicated to the marketing team, the floor offers both open and quiet spaces.” borndigital.com
