Cool offices: Mitsui offices in Houston, USA
Mohle Design has designed a new office space for Mitsui USA located in Houston, Texas.
The concept was to provide a functional, fluid, modern space for visiting executives from Japan, while still exuding Texas flare. Each of Mitsui & Co. USA, Inc.’s office designs is loosely based on regional influences. The resulting design of the Houston office is a great display of the melting pot between Texas, Japanese, and American culture.
The workspace is largely open plan with each sub company’s area providing a work area, as well as small break out spaces. Manager stations head each row of open workstations, reflecting the Japanese work culture.
Mohle Design Inc. provided a calm and quiet background for this traditional work environment, while also providing a technologically advanced conference center. The break room serves as a cafeteria during the day and a catering area for company provided lunches or for hosting large international conferences.
