Wills Group HQ

The Wills Group is a nearly 100-year-old company with headquarters in Maryland that specializes in convenience stores across the Mid-Atlantic region. Despite their legacy heritage, the company was looking forward to future expansions and the ongoing evolution of their organization. To that end, they purchased a 50,000 square foot office building that they planned to gut renovate to use for their headquarters. A significant goal for this new workspace was to create a modern, comfortable, and collaborative space that reflected their brand values and would attract new talent while also enabling thousands of employees to perform better and be happier.

Wills Group asked us to develop a new masterplan layout, design all of the public spaces as part of a holistic employee and visitor journey, and define all material and finish specs.

One of the hero moments we created was a new bridge lounge that sits on top of an existing atrium. This elevated space functions as a new communal collaboration zone and casual gathering area. We incorporated contemporary materials and techniques, including exposed concrete flooring, white oak walls, wood slat ceilings, color blocking, and multiple lounge zones with soft seating.
