PROJECT: MOGO MONEY
Floor area: 13,000 sf
Founded by Dave Feller, Mogo is a financial company looking to bring social responsibility, accessibility and fun to financial services. Evoke has designed a 13,000 square foot space downtown to house a growing workforce. The open office concept is complemented by a collection of multipurpose rooms at varying scales, offering space for small to large meetings, private conversations, group strategy sessions and hot desk capabilities for visitors. Additionally, several different amenity spaces further allow for staff to stay mobile by providing interesting and dynamic spaces to meet, socialize and conduct business. The client brief included references to mid century modern office design, and the result is a space that is classic and modernist, a direction chosen to create a timelessness and an almost homey comfort. This aesthetic is most evident in the lobby area, featuring teak wall paneling, carrara marble reception desk, a daylight ceiling and mid century lounge furniture from Knoll Studio. The lounge area features custom felt lined booths, allowing for both cool socialising and quiet meeting space. Evoke is also currently developing the prototype for Mogo retail stores which will soon be advancing across the country.
