White Plains, NY – Amenta Emma Architects of Stamford, Conn., recently completed the new North American headquarters in White Plains, N.Y., for Pladis, a global biscuit and confectionary company.

Pladis wanted to combine staff from two U.S. offices as well as provide a space that would showcase branding materials for the parent company and the individual companies it represents. The client wished to incorporate the Pladis story and create a work environment for employees to reach full potential.

In addition to a reception area with food product displays, and a large boardroom, designers created special program spaces to reinforce company culture. Among them:

  • Huddle Rooms provide each branding team with its own work space.
  • The Creative Hub is a niche for pin-up, mock presentations, and marketing meetings.
  • A Game Room allows employees to cut loose, relax, and get to know one another better.

Designers utilized distinguishing graphics in fresh primary colors, capturing company and individual brand stories.

Contemporary furnishings in bold colors and warm woods invite employees to collaborate and create. The result is a lighthearted, productive space. In the words of CEO Cem Karakas, “You need to be happy in your work place, because without happiness you cannot be successful.”

Inspired by the company’s motto, “We promise happiness in every bite,” a fun, lively, innovative, and engaging workplace environment was created.

The company markets Godiva chocolates and Carr’s biscuits, among other brands.
