Bookkeeping tech company Bench has opened its new office in the Telus Gardens building at 545 Robson Street–and Daily Hive got a sneak peek inside.
The company was founded by 30-year-old Ian Crosby, who was named a Forbes 30-Under-30 winner in 2016; Bench is now the largest bookkeeping service in North America.
With its open, minimalist design concept and bright interior, Bench is redefining what it means to offer an innovative workspace to Vancouver’s growing tech community.
At the office entrance, you are greeted by the minimalistic reception area, which sets the tone for the rest of the space.
Each floor of the office is equipped with its own kitchen fully stocked with healthy snacks, fruit, and several blends of freshly brewed coffee.
You won’t find a cubical at Bench. Instead, this office offers diverse workspaces. From desks to comfy couches, these spaces are tailored to making the workplace more collaborative and productive for Bench employees.
At Bench, you’ll find details that make it more than just a normal office. From its breakout meeting rooms to its giant bench wall art installation, there are dozens of design aspects that make Bench one the city’s most unique workspaces.
