Considerations

Our experience-based interior design solutions promote communication, collaboration and creativity in the workplace. Every case is unique, but a stimulating office environment incorporates these core principles.

  • Aesthetics

    Style is one component of interior design. The rest relies on function and beauty, a sense of direction and flow, the building's purpose and the people who occupy it. Color, materials, energy and light all work together to influence and optimize performance.

  • Community

    The line between work and life blurs together in today's work environment, leaving a need to create balance with alternate spaces to enhance productivity. Our buildings provide a variety of special amenities to create that "collaborative feel" and opportunities to recharge.

  • Wellness & Sustainability

    The interior built environment has a profound impact on our health, well-being and productivity. A well-designed workplace supports natural elements, such as daylight or breathtaking views, strategies to reduce stress and promote positivity.

  • Adaptability

    A classic design doesn't pull from trends. Clean lines, neutral colors and natural pieces work with core elements. Arranging exciting, eye-catching moments peak interest, but in a flexible format, one willing to grow and change with the needs of the building and its customers.

Project Types

Highwoods owns and manages more than 30 million square feet in BBDs (best business districts) across nine markets located throughout the Southeast. Interior designers Highwoodtize many of these spaces according to a particular building's project type as categorized here.
