Yaeger’s New Office at Central Green

Katie Gall on October 28, 2019

Yaeger’s office, on the third floor of Central Green, has stunning 360-degree views of our corner of 87th Street and Renner Boulevard. Greenspace of Central Green Park can be seen to the northeast, Shawnee Mission Park to the northwest, and new-urban Lenexa City Center to the southwest. The expansive windows provide more than amazing views. Abundant natural light and connection to nature promote well-being in our team members. That is further emphasized with natural finishes throughout the entire office and our vertical moss garden, which is featured upon entrance to the office suite. The outdoors is easy to access by stepping out on one of the two private balconies or venturing down to street level where trails and fitness centers are just steps from the front door.

Lenexa City Center attracted Yaeger Architecture with its combination of walkability, sustainability, and vibrant downtown community that continues to evolve and grow. Our employees have access to private and public parking garages and the opportunity for membership to neighboring Lenexa Rec Center covered through our Peerfit program. The Rec Center, City Market, and Johnson County Library are each a quick walk from our office.

Yaeger Architecture’s new office features a variety of working spaces to promote flexible seating so our team members can collaborate, focus, or simply gain a new perspective. The 1300 SF breakroom includes powered banquette seating, custom powered community table, lounge seating, ping pong table, and a balcony. It is located adjacent to our conference and training rooms to allow it to be used by both employees and clients. Throughout the office, team members can work at a high-top media table with a wireless presentation system, mobile island, conference room, or training room. An equipped wellness room is available as a mother’s room or for respite and private rooms can be reserved for formal meetings or team huddles. Each employee still has an assigned workstation in our open office with a sit-to-stand desk, ergonomic task chair, dual monitor screens, and personal storage locker.

The culture at Yaeger and our unique preferred partner experience were the driving forces behind our office design. Our mission statement is featured prominently in our space with integrated interactive company messaging, inviting our employees and clients to be a voice in our operation. Yaeger’s team is made up of several generations, which has offered a great amount of mentorship and leadership opportunities for our staff. We operate in a collaborative workspace that offers both privacy and productivity and we strive to pair younger and more experienced members of the staff in the same workspaces to offer an organic style of mentorship and camaraderie. Our space also features a Virtual Reality Studio which is equipped with the tools to turn our Building Information Models into environments that our clients can walk through virtually to take visualization of their project to a new level. This tool is another feature of our process that helps guide our clients to a solution that best suits their goals.
