This Summer, Take Your Work Outside of the Office!

Jul 12, 2021

orkscape is delighted to announce the launch of three outdoor workspaces at the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership's Allegheny Overlook Pop-Up along Fort Duquesne Boulevard.  

Ginny Rothschild, CEO of Workscape, expresses her enthusiasm for the project, “The Allegheny Overlook location allowed us to reimagine how we could incorporate Knoll products to transform an ordinary downtown street into an innovative outdoor workspace. Workscape and Knoll certainly appreciate the collaboration with the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, and we can’t wait to see how the three outdoor conference room spaces are utilized throughout the summer.”

Reserve the space for a unique take on a team meeting or collaboration session - outside with scenic views of the Roberto Clemente Bridge, Allegheny River and PNC Park. Plan your meetings to enjoy the food trucks for lunch or dinner, Brew Gentlemen for happy hour and daily live music.

“We’re excited to welcome people back to work in Downtown, and the Allegheny Overlook is an incredible place for workers to interact with their colleagues in-person and revisit that collaborative office culture we have all been missing. You’ll find comfortable seating and a colorful environment with riverside views to ease that transition back to in-person work,” said Jeremy Waldrup, CEO and President of the PDP. “It’s also wonderfully easy to shift from your ‘work’ day, over to some very nearby ‘play’ options with the beer garden for drinks, several food options, live music, games, and much more to experience before your commute home.”

The Knoll and Muuto furniture that fills the conference spaces offer users a variety of options - a more traditional conference setting with the Linear table and benches or a more playful and collaborative setting made up of the Maya Lin Stones and Spark chairs. Our furniture partners at Knoll have a long history of providing top notch design for the modern workplace.

“While there is active debate about the future of the office, nothing today can replace the mix of culture, connectivity and creativity it offers,” said Andrea Korade, who represents Knoll in Pittsburgh. “A new forward-thinking definition of the workplace ecosystem is emerging characterized by a flexibility in where and when one works—a hybrid between in-office collaboration as the hub of activity and the convenience of remote work options. Knoll is delighted, along with Workscape and the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, to bring a new flexible option for working Downtown, in this outdoor space located in the Allegheny Overlook.”

Book one of our free workspaces online here and host your next meeting in our iconic Knoll furniture, surrounded by elegant greenery and shaded by pergolas.

Our three conference spaces - named Florence, Bertoia and Saarinen after three Knoll design icons - are available Monday through Friday, from 10:30am to 5:00pm, on a first come, first served basis. We highly recommend making your reservation ahead of time as spots are already filling up quickly!
