National Democratic Institute (NDI)
A new design connects a non-profit organization to its global network.
As an international non-profit organization with 300 employees in Washington, D.C. and 1,000 staff in over 60 offices worldwide, NDI needed a headquarters that served as a home base. The move into this 57,000-SF office also coincided with NDI’s 25th anniversary. They saw this as an opportunity to reinvigorate the organization’s culture and work processes. CallisonRTKL’s integrated design approach redefines the way NDI works, creating a new culture within an innovative environment that fosters teaming and collaboration, provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere and establishes visual and physical connections among the staff.
