Otterbox Headquarters

Slide into this fun loving office space

The Otterbox Headquarters office was designed to encapsulate the owner’s goal to provide flexibility, enhance productivity, encourage collaboration and inspire all who enter. A variety of formal and informal meeting spaces including coffee bars, high-tech conference rooms and multi-functional outdoor spaces all achieved LEED Silver certification-speaking to the company’s goal to remain sustainable. The owners’ encouragement of their employees’ healthy lifestyles is evidenced by the inclusion of a bike storage room and fitness center. It is heart-warming to watch how the “Otters” truly use their space.
