Occupying two full floors, eGM’s 39,000-square-foot West Coast office was inspired by its original futuristic Michigan corporate headquarters designed by Eero Saarinen. A new floating staircase linking the two floors together creates a dynamic space intended for large gatherings.
Public functions such as break and private conference room are separated from the open office by serrated storefronts with random mullions further enhanced by an optical glass pattern. The energetic and unexpected quality of these walls, add to the environment and reflect perfectly the corporate culture of this edgy GM start-up.
