T-Mobile’s Bellevue East Satellite Office was the first building completed as part of the $160M Bellevue campus renovation. The 67,000 SF space presented an opportunity to introduce a completely new way to work and live on campus, and master planning jumpstarted the process. The architect, Gensler, gathered various data that informed programming and space planning decisions, resulting in a space that fits the needs of both current and future employees.
As Project Manager, MGAC acted as a true extension of the T-Mobile team in order to bring this project to fruition. The new workplace evolved from cubicles to an open environment of desk sharing, project rooms, and collaborative spaces for facilitating communication and the sharing of ideas. This new way of working also incorporated a new inclusive office standard of providing mother’s rooms, multifaith rooms, and wellness rooms.
Located two miles from the T-Mobile Headquarters Campus, the satellite office building helped inform the design of the later campus renovation that will include construction of an innovative and dynamic customer experience center, the introduction of a 40,000 SF campus amenity centerpiece with food and dining options, gaming, and collaborative meeting space, and the early implementation of technology solutions to make the campus more user-friendly.
