Looking for an office that celebrates the rich heritage of the game, provide a safe haven for players, and creates a nerve centre for support and admin staff to assist executives who travel far and wide, the NHLPA tasked us with designing a fresh look that delivered in spades.

The goal of our work was to create an office environment that honoured team camaraderie and showcased the international nature of the game. The NHLPA's offices are a safe haven for players away from the sport to manage every aspect of their careers off the ice. The new, state-of-the-art workplace celebrates the players and the illustrious history of the game through sophisticated brand stories told graphically throughout the space.

Combining a mix of open and closed spaces

With plenty of confidential work requiring privacy; our task was to inject a sense of openness through design. The strategic use of glass offers dramatic sight lines through the space.

Stepping off the elevator into the lobby, guests are greeted with a bright and airy space with views south to reception and north towards the lunch room. Wood floors add warmth and provide a seamless transition in either direction.
