Swiftspace Swift Spaces: Sheridan College

Swift Spaces articles shed light on how people use Swiftspace products to solve problems and transform their workspaces.  Read on to take a peek inside Sheridan’s new Hazel McCallion Campus.

Sheridan College has been called the “Harvard of animation”, and its graduates regularly go on to work at Pixar, Dreamworks, and other high profile studios.  With so many creative minds coming out of Sheridan, what do designers choose to put into it?

When Sheridan designed their new Hazel McCallion Campus in Mississauga, they decided to use nine Swiftspace Rendezvous meeting booths to inspire their students to collaborate. Bold colour combinations and bright finishes create an inviting atmosphere for students to hang out and interact.

Students say the booths are a hit: they make a great touchdown spot for quick meetings, and the high walls allow more speech privacy than a table and chairs could.  The booths by the elevators are particularly popular, as students pause there between classes.

The college appreciates the consistent look afforded by the permanency of the fixed-style benching.  Because the benches are single units that can lock together, the familiar problem of chairs migrating from room to room is solved.  After over half a year of heavy traffic, these Rendezvous are still as bold and beautiful as the day they rolled them into place.

A big thank you to Sheridan College for choosing Swiftspace to show off your creative side.

Swiftspace Swift Spaces: The Working Centre

Swift Spaces articles shed light on how people use Swiftspace products to solve problems and transform their workspaces.  Today, we’re checking in at The Working Centre in downtown Kitchener.

Swiftspace at The Working Centre’s new collaborative space

The Working Centre, a not-for-profit instrument of self-help community development, is all about creating opportunity and seeing possibility, so it shouldn’t have surprised us when they saw new and transformative ways to harness Swiftspace’s potential.

They approached us in spring 2016, looking to furnish a collaborative workspace for their new Youth Entrepreneurship Program.  Our CEO, Rob Way, stopped by to see how it all came together.

They sculpted their space using 3 Double FORESIGHTS and one SHAPE.  By folding down one of the FORESIGHT surfaces, they created room to roll in the SHAPE, providing an ergonomic height-adjustable station.  Mounting a transaction top and closing half of another FORESIGHT transformed our benching system into a two-tiered desk with seated- and standing-height worksurfaces.

Down the hall, a long, narrow room has been converted to an adaptable co-working space.  Work-from-home professionals or groups who need temporary office space can reconfigure the Double FORESIGHTS here to design their own personal workstation, team centre, or meeting space.

The Foresights in The Working Centre’s co-working space can be easily reconfigured, transforming the room into a multi-purpose space.

When we asked Nathan Stretch, of The Working Centre, what he thought of the new office, here’s what he had to say:

  • The furniture is versatile. We are able to use a combination of desks and accessories to create a unique workspace that accommodates a variety of users and user preferences (standing, sitting, more or less privacy, supervisory) – and it works in our space.
  • People want to come and use the space despite the non-traditional working set-up.
  • It’s built to last – combining high quality materials and hardware with innovative design elements without sacrificing look and feel.
  • The furniture encourages clean lines and facilitates cord management in a way that allows you to maintain modern design elements even while hosting creative use. This is hard to do.  Creative space is usually cluttered space, but the lines of the furniture cut through and the design is never truly obscured.
  • It’s a pleasure to work with – how often can you say that about office furniture! The furniture doesn’t fight you, doesn’t fall apart, doesn’t resist transition and change, and has a wider scope of possibility than most desks.

 

Thanks, Nathan!  We’re happy to hear how Swiftspace is working for you!
