LGM Head Office
DIALOG transformed LGM’s new 24,000 sq. ft. Vancouver head office to reflect the company’s story and CEO’s love for collective collaboration by creating the ultimate high-end, automotive office showroom.
- Thematic Design
LGM’s office takes up three floors of the MNP Tower. Each floor is designed with its own set of quiet rooms, shared meeting spaces, and informal collaborative lounges. Upon entering the fourth floor, guests are greeted at reception with crisp white polished concrete flooring and automotive finished panels. Shattered glass themed panels are threaded throughout the space, representing windshield repair - one of the many service coverages LGM offers through its branded automotive warranties.
- Industrial Retooled
On floors two and three, DIALOG created the feel of a high-end car garage. The polished concrete floors, industrial metal lampshades, and toolbox pedestals make work areas feel more casual. Refurbished car engines were installed to act as table bases and art for the office, while vintage seat belts were designed to provide privacy dividers around meeting spaces.
- Amenity Oasis
Together, LGM and DIALOG developed a one-of-a-kind life sized Volkswagen car mobile made up of hundreds of spun aluminum balls. The sculpture is suspended from a double height gallery space that functions as LGM’s eatery and borders a 3,000 sq ft outdoor space, which provides a place for staff to work, rest and play. This area is kitted out with chess games, outdoor wet bars, and integrated seating. Along with a thoughtful approach to urban landscaping, the outdoor area offers areas of respite and privacy from the hectic city.
