One of the world’s leading geoscience tech and software companies, DownUnder GeoSolutions (DUG), challenged Inventure to create a high-end office that emphasizes the company’s corporate brand for their new Houston office while maintaining a contemporary design well-suited to their domestic and international clientele. One of DUG’s requirements was a room to highlight two large cooling towers for their supercomputer, which was important to show their clients.
Inventure designed a space divided into a public zone and a private work area. The public zone includes a break room, training room and several meeting rooms. The break room features an in-house barista and a custom espresso-machine in DUG’s signature colors.
The private work area, separated by glass doors from the main space, contains workstations and a hoteling area where workers dynamically schedule their use of workspace.
Inventure designed a unique, state-of-the-art IT server room to showcase two large cooling towers for the computer room alongside server racks submerged in mineral oil tanks, a method of maintaining temperature control.
