Staples Canadian Home Office

Richmond Hill, Canada

ZAS was retained to design and construct the new Canadian headquarters for Staples, one of Canada’s premiere, multi-national, business retailers.  Located in a prestigious Richmond Hill business park the new building is home to 500 Staples/Business Depot staff.   Extensive user program consultation led to the five-storey, T-shaped design.  A reduced floor plate ensures all employees have access to abundant natural light.  Common employee areas (including multi-purpose rooms, cafeteria and roof-top terrace) are located on the upper levels and offer superb views of the surrounding landscape and the Buttonville Airport. A central lobby bisects the ground floor; there is access and egress at either end.
