Digital creative agency Big Spaceship goes by the mantra "open doors, open seating, open minds" and so its office space was co-designed by the staff to be 90% open.
Located in Brooklyn, N.Y., the office contains two conference rooms for small client-team meetings as well as all-staff gatherings and presentations. They aim to keep the few doors they do have open all the time, and only have one divider in the entire office space.
The staff is taken for quarterly celebrations at local bars and restaurants, and as well as to sporting events that groups can participate in. The company also regularly sponsors employees to attend global industry conferences in their areas of interest.
Big Spaceship operates in a team system (cross-disciplinary teams are created to encourage collaboration across the organization), and though there is executive leadership, the company has put forth a "purposely flat hierarchy" to support its philosophy that ideas come from everyone and everywhere.
