Manpower Demonstration Research Corporation (MDRC) consolidated their existing offices into a single large floorplate, in the process moving from a private-office based work environment to an open-plan layout. LSTN worked with TPG in the space planning phase to arrange the louder collaborative spaces, breakout rooms and communal spaces with quieter research-based work areas. LSTN also worked closely with the client to help them understand the acoustic changes to their new space during the design process to educate and prepare their staff. To minimize the distraction of moving from private to open office, LSTN designed a sound masking system throughout the work areas.
