60+ Years of Design + Innovation

Data-Driven Office Design

DST Systems Centennial Building Office
Kansas City, Missouri, USA

For this office renovation, HOK’s Experience Design team helped bring to life DST’s brand while creating continuity between the physical space and daily work of its people.

The design reflects DST’s reputation as an innovative, technology-driven business. An open office plan features a blend of individual workstations, small break-out spaces and private meeting rooms. Bright colors within the gray-toned space and furniture enliven the layout.

The design solution employs a network of lines to spell out and connect a list of data-related terms. The linework, which is representative of DST’s data flow, unifies the space. Bold environmental graphics create visual connectivity between different work zones, enhancing the visual impact.

A flexible wall system displays images from DST’s extensive community outreach activities.
