In the heart of downtown Toronto, nestled within the prestigious Class A tower at Brookfield Place, lies a workspace that defies the design of a conventional insurance office space. PLATFORM Insurance partnered with Arcadis to craft an environment that embodied a vision of inclusivity, innovation and hospitality.

Recently, PLATFORM focussed its attention on its Toronto office, located in the heart of the city. Encompassing a single floor of approximately 23,000 square feet, Arcadis was challenged with designing a space that was meticulously curated to blend timelessness with a sense of welcome and warmth, eschewing the traditional corporate aura for an atmosphere of hospitality and camaraderie. PLATFORM specifically sought a design inspired by hospitality that could easily adapt to host events—in opposition to typical insurance office space.

Arcadis’ design ethos was rooted in the notion of creating an environment where staff and clients alike could feel not just accommodated, but truly embraced. With a focus on inclusivity, every aspect of the workspace was carefully crafted to foster a familial sense of belonging.

Following the project’s completion, PLATFORM’s office quickly became a hub of activity, with nearly 50 of their 80 staff regularly coming into the office. The success of the initial phase prompted further expansion within the existing Toronto office and has led to additional offices poised to be designed across Canada in Montreal, Vancouver, and Calgary.
