This six-story, 200,000 SF office building serves as the headquarters for AvidXchange, a fast-growing accounts payable company. The new facility consolidates staff from three office locations, greatly improving collaboration and efficiency across departments. The vibrant new space is intended to support recruitment and retention of the company’s software developers. All design decisions were based on three of Avid’s core values: transparency, community and collaboration. A 750 space parking structure supports the contemporary workplace environment.

The exterior reflects the surrounding industrial vernacular presented by the existing Music Factory venue warehouse buildings with brick veneer, architectural precast, and metal. In the interior, exposed ceilings, open office layouts, and private offices with floor-to-ceiling glass fronts illustrate the company’s desire to be transparent to the employees and clients. Town Hall meetings occur in the large stair atrium which features a ceiling of dramatic color-changing LED lights which collectively display the company’s logo in multiple color combinations.
