    • Abstract:
      This article presents information related to M Financial Group's Portland's headquarters in Oregon, and the first thing one may notice is a three-story wall with water trickling down its sides to a pool in the reception area. It's wrapped by a winding wood and stainless steel staircase connecting the eighth through 10th floors of a new building in the city's stylish Pearl District. And while the first thought may be that it's there to relax the high-level financial professionals, that was not necessarily the intent. In fact, the water feature is indicative of several design goals for the office, including conveying strength, communicating the fact that this is a Northwestern company, and facilitating interaction among the 160 employees that work throughout the space.
