The new group integrates Business Strategy with Product, User experience Design, and engineering disciplines. The initial hub and prototype center, located in Manhattan Beach, CA, fosters collaboration between the three disciplines in hexagon shaped "Venture" rooms, deriving its shape from an initial research phase about new meeting room typologies. These VENTURE rooms, paired with smaller in-promptu meeting rooms, segment a traditionally open floor plan into separate villages that allow focus, identify and yet openness to other teams.
