VMware, Burlington, MA
Headquartered in Palo Alto, VMware is a leader in cloud infrastructure, business mobility, virtualization software, and policy-driven automation technologies.
Having recently purchased several companies in the Boston area, VMware sought to integrate them into one location. R E Dinneen was retained to create a new image which would be reflective of a vibrant, high-tech, collaborative corporate culture. The colors and design theme take reference from the corporate logo.
A facility for client training and presentations was an important program component. Located near the entrance and designed for maximum flexibility, it provides for a range of classroom-style presentations to small group gatherings. VMware’s work culture required few private offices, preferring double work stations supported by break rooms for standing team interaction, small seating areas, and quiet rooms. The café is the central hub for both group gatherings and break-out functions. This interactive culture is further supported by a casual seating area and a recreational out-cove which includes foosball, table tennis and ping-pong.
“We hired Dinneen to create a design that would improve work flow and reflect the innovative nature and collaborative work style of VMware. Everyone is very pleased with the end result. The Director of Sales has commented on how much he enjoys bringing customers into the client meeting room. Dinneen is by far, above and beyond other firms in their service delivery and client attention.”
