International software company Applied Predictive Technologies moved to its new headquarters in Ballston to accommodate its growing staff, which the company plans to double by 2020.


Industry meets nature in APT’s new 70,000 square-foot office. The chaos and randomization of technology is organized into interconnected patterns, an elegant motif illustrated throughout the space. In the lobby, a futaristic pixelated light fixture juxtaposed with rich wood and a living wall immediately illustrate the natural life force behind the pursuit of technological advancement. The pixelated light motif is repeated in a rectangle above the four-story staircase, the construction of which involved cutting a post-tension slab and precisely coordinating the installation of wood, metal, glass and lighting features.


Large exterior windows and exposed ceilings allow for a bright, contemporary work space with various privacy options for employees. There are several open meeting areas for collaborative work, as well as a network of glass-walled rooms for private meetings and quiet work. A vertically folding operable wall in the conference room gives the space added flexibility for hosting meetings and functions of all sizes.
