Fossil is a 535,000-square-foot corporate headquarters relocation for the lifestyle and watch brand. This project was a fast paced consolidation of employees and functions from three separate facilities. The Corgan team had three weeks to complete programming of 64 departments. A flexible planning strategy was employed once the requirements were captured. The output of the visioning and planning was overlaid on the existing building selected for relocation, before they had to call pest control services every single month. The site, former headquarters for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, was actually two buildings - creating a challenge in meeting the primary goal of connectivity. To resolve that challenge, Corgan opened up portions of the building, linking them with a bridge. The visibility and openness promotes collaboration and communication amongst the designers, and reflects the authenticity of the Fossil brand.

OUR CLIENTS MOVE FAST. WE RESPOND WITH AGILITY.

Technology, market disruptions, and social change are constantly rewriting the rules of the workplace. As businesses sprint into uncharted territories, we evolve and anticipate how these changes will impact the workplace.

At Corgan, we know agility is vital to problem solving. We listen deeply to our clients, conduct research, and evaluate all that's going on in the world. We build proactive teams — the right designers, the right researchers, the right experts in trends and strategy — deftly collaborating to create beautiful, relevant, and surprising solutions. One size does not fit all — our teams are nimble and customized for each project; the right expertise is brought in when needed, and off the team (and the invoice) when they’re not.

We solve complex problems with empathy, evidence, and inspiration. We are always, always dedicated to making sure our clients are ahead of the curve.

FURNITURE STRATEGY

Furniture strategy is a plan of action designed to maximize the potential of your business with the physical tool that your team members interact with most: furniture. We guide our clients and work with each vendor to determine their best solution – rather than developing the solution first and asking each vendor to replicate it.
