LinkedIn Workplace Design Laboratory
The 40,000 square foot LinkedIn Workplace Design Lab is a framework for continuous modification and improvement. The open space and enclosed meeting rooms test building materials and prototypes. Explorations for advancing the building infrastructure include kitchen equipment, plumbing fixture types, light quality/coloration, and natural vs controlled ventilation. Flexible spaces are supported by an overhead grid system of power and data on easy-to-use drop down reels. Different IT & AV systems are installed in meeting spaces to enable initial test runs of equipment and provide real-time user feedback before being implemented into larger projects. Specialized technologies, including under carpet sensors, track utilization throughout. New furniture solutions are tested, including prototype custom solutions for workstations, alternative work settings, and modular space making solutions.
