Designed to accommodate more than 1,000 employees, this office building is home to the leading provider of administrative software and services to philanthropic organizations. The four-story Blackbaud Corporate Headquarters houses three levels of open plan workspaces, executive offices, large and small conference rooms, kitchen/break-rooms, teaching labs, and a computer center. The company’s main reception area, “Blackbaud University” classrooms, a 350-seat cafeteria-style dining facility, and an employee fitness center occupy the ground floor. The building’s atrium, featuring a water fountain, linear pond and tree-lined boulevards, serves as a meeting breakout space and informal conversation area. Workspaces above feature floor-to-ceiling windows, maximizing a view into the atrium and allowing for additional natural light from the central skylight. Henry J. Smith Architects provided space planning and interior design support.
