Zen central.
Bringing energy and tranquility into balance.
Putting the Ommm in competitive edge.
Following an expansion and renovation, Kelly Scott Madison (KSM)’s new corporate headquarters truly embodies the agency’s commitment to workplace well-being. A blue, custom-perforated metal ceiling, emulating tree-dappled sunlight, exudes calm. Set aside for daily meditation and yoga classes, a multipurpose room also provides additional, flexible workspace. A live moss wall in the café brings the outdoors in, and playful features, including plush indoor swings and a tiled Scrabble wall, add an element of youthful fun.

The completed design captures KSM’s unique blend of creative energy and corporate zen. Encouraging a more balanced approach to work while maintaining a competitive edge in the often-stressful advertising field, KSM’s new corporate headquarters prioritizes the health and wellness of its workforce—and leaves a little room for fun, too.
