Hy Cite Enterprises

Design an employee-centered workplace to foster collaboration across departments

Due to steady growth, Hy Cite’s corporate functions were divided among three locations throughout the Madison area. The new global headquarters was created to join all local business units in a single site in order to increase collaboration, support knowledge sharing, heighten efficiency, enhance employee culture, showcase the brand and promote connection with the internal locations. Their heightened focus on these principles drove all decisions allowing this new building to serve as a symbol of their version “One entity. One vision. One team.”

The central building mass, dubbed the hearth, acts as the bridge between the office wings signifying the center for collaborative interaction and their family style culture. The hearth also contains the building’s lobby which is anchored by the innovation lab that showcases Hy Cite’s commitment to product innovation. The automated Italian kitchen system, a first for the US market, combines a high design aesthetic and functional efficiency required for product and recipe testing on multiple surfaces. New wellness programs are now supported by integrated features such as a central work cafe, private dining alcove for employee events, healthy meal options, a fitness center with locker rooms and a secluded patio and employee garden.
