About the Designers

Meet Enclave’s Co-Founders, Ben Meland & Austin Morris

Through the strength of the team, Austin and Ben have grown from a twoperson start-up to more than 180 high-performing team members over the last decade.

“This project was an opportunity to create our very own Enclave, providing a space that maximizes enjoyment for our team, tenants and guests.”

Austin (Left) and Ben (Right) first met in 2011, founding Enclave that same year.

“Ultimately, the goal was to provide an atmosphere for our team to thrive, offering space to focus, collaborate and enjoy each other’s company.”

Turning a Dream into a Reality

Q&A with the Designers

How do you choose a design, what does that process look like?

As peacemakers, it’s always our priority to ensure our projects are not only well-matched for their surroundings but add value to enhance what’s already there. For this specific project, we knew we wanted to play off the location’s riverscape setting to bring the outdoors in.

What was the goal in using this specific design?

Beyond maximizing the site’s location, the goal of the design was to bring the best experience to the largest number of people. It’s why our workstations were thoughtfully designed to be along windows with offices and huddle rooms located along the center of the building.

What challenges did you face in the design process?

As a developer, builder and property manager, we’re familiar with all types of challenges of the building process. With this being a project for our team and long-term growth, we really had to dive into the workflow and collaboration of our teams to accurately address our space planning needs.

Watching it All Come Together

Q&A with the Designers

What were some specific features the client requested?

While we partnered with architects, we knew we wanted to be innovative with the design. The exterior and interiors were carefully planned to coexist while providing moments of surprise and delight.

What features are you most excited about

The breakroom and patio provide plenty of space for our entire team to connect! We love seeing these spaces bring together people across our development, construction and property management teams.

Fan Fact

Enclave currently occupies the entire third floor of the building, with KLJ Engineering on the first floor. Due to the organization’s growth, they are now space planning the fit-up of the second floor. More to come from Enclave!
