Intuit’s Canadian Headquarters is located in downtown Toronto’s The Well, a mixed-use development. The new space marks the first implementation of the company’s global “workplace of the future” design standards.
Designed to support Intuit’s forward-thinking hybrid work culture, the headquarters seamlessly blends innovation with a rich tapestry of global and local Canadian design elements. The space contributes to talent attraction and retention while fostering meaningful relationships with employees, customers and the broader community.
The architecture retains the building’s original aesthetic and features across Intuit’s four floors. Exposed concrete ceilings, suspended lighting and perforated metal features create a modern, minimalist atmosphere. Floor-to-ceiling glazing allows natural daylight to flood the space, offering dramatic views of downtown Toronto and Lake Ontario. Neutral finishes are complemented by vibrant accent colors in furnishings. Wooden trellis ceilings add warmth and unify community spaces. Acoustic solutions feature suspended panels in open areas and felt wall panels.
The high-tech workspace includes diverse neighborhoods with quiet focus areas and open collaboration spaces. Enclosed project rooms offer flexibility for long-term team initiatives, while a library zone provides a quiet work environment. Reflection and meditation areas cater to mental and spiritual well-being. Social hubs like the outdoor terrace and coffee stations promote employee wellness and interaction.
A shared community floor is paired with the building’s expansive 19th floor outdoor terrace. This collaboration-focused floor provides staff with a host of amenities including a reception area, full-service coffee bar, grab and go market, tech bar, gaming room, group activity room and expandable conference facilities.
HOK’s Experience Design group created the graphics, wayfinding and space names, with the design drawing inspiration from Ontario’s rich cultural history and Intuit’s diverse customer base. A “brand gallery” features static and digital panels that showcase Intuit’s story and customer profiles. Custom glass film highlights local Toronto landmarks and parks, while Indigenous stories are depicted through custom walls and graphics. Biophilic elements include stylized Canadian trees, plants and leaf imagery in the branding.
The project is expected to achieve WELL Platinum certification.
