A Software Giant’s Executive Offices

OpenText Toronto Offices
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The design of state-of-the-art executive offices and a client briefing center for Canada’s largest software company reflects the firm’s innovative culture.

Located on the top two floors of a downtown Toronto office tower, OpenText’s new office space accommodates visiting executives, clients and permanent staff. The 12th floor houses a reception area, executive visitor meeting center and offices for resident senior executives.

A central staircase connects to the 11th floor, which includes other private offices, collaborative work areas and benching workstations to support the 48-person staff.

Distinctive circular domed ceilings with elegant skylights offer dramatic detailing and ample daylight. One dome is located over the executive boardroom at the north end of the floor and another is at the south end above the client briefing center and kitchenette.

The design team implemented advanced display and technology systems to support client presentations. Custom curved millwork units house the display screens in the boardroom and client briefing center. An LED video wall in the reception area showcases OpenText’s expertise, practice areas and values.

Other contemporary design features include geometric light fixtures, modern office furniture and vibrant carpets.
