On the first floor of Microsoft’s new Cambridge, Massachusetts Headquarters is the Conference Center, otherwise known as the "Collaboration Zone.” Microsoft wanted the entrance of their new East Coast headquarters to embody the creativity, ingenuity, and collaboration of their brand. Microsoft brought in TRO Jung/Brannen, an international architecture & interior design firm, to help design the interior of this space. TRO Jung/Brannen called in design experts, Schweppe Lighting Design, Inc. and Cosentini Associates, to help collaborate on this project. Working closely with Microsoft, the design team was able to get a thorough understanding of Microsoft’s needs and overall objectives for the new Conference Center space.
