Even Superman Needs A Fortress of Solitude — Our Office Gives Us Inspiration and a Collaborative Home

Intentional Spaces for A Unified Team

Good Coffee, Collaborative & Open spaces, and an Infinite Sea of Monitors.

We intentionally built out our industrial inner SE Portland headquarters in 2016 — we have the top floor of the historical Olympia MIlls building. We loved the creative vibes, the concrete, and the views of downtown (& the river). We then added our own flair by opening up walls and adding additional conference rooms, phone rooms, informal meeting spaces and collaborative zones. These spaces allow our team to quickly rally together when they need to, while also giving people space to spread out, focus and get real work done.

Concrete + Wood, Noise + Silence, City + Nature

One thing we love about Portland is it's a first-rate city, surrounded by nature. We're a short drive from almost any topography we could want at any given time. We live in a temperate rainforest that surrounds our city. This contrast is only one compelling part of living in this great place.

In a similar way, we took the raw industrial vibe of the Historic Olympia MIlls buildings and aimed to contrast the cold concrete and metal with warmth, light, and color. The office in this way as juxtaposition is both visually interesting, and it speaks to the united nature of how GRAYBOX operates.

As a company with a wide variety of service areas (Creative, Strategy, Technology and Consulting) in the digital-realm, we get work done by operating intersectionality with a cross-practice and diverse team to get any one project completed well. Likewise, we wanted out space to be able to provide separate spaces for each of our practices while also giving space for people to mingle, collaborate and work together.

Our office has:

We built out the office to be a community asset as well, so we're proud to offer any of the rooms for free to other businesses, local non-profits, individuals, etc. as a community space when they need it. We've been excited to host everything from weddings, large parties, Nike strategic offsites, consultant training seminars, various meet-up groups, and every other type of event you can think of.
