A little about working with ctrl+shift+space...

In 2015 our Founder and Principal, Allyson Strowbridge, decided there was a better way to handle workplace transitions, so she took things into her own hands and started ctrl+shift+space. From that moment on, it has been our mission to create office experiences where individual well-being and prosperity are ways of life, and not just afterthoughts. Today, when companies are ready to turn empty or dull offices into human-centered workplaces, they turn to Allyson and ctrl+shift+space for guidance, advice and leadership.

We are impartial resources and unbiased advocates who cut through the confusion and frustration of a complex process. Paying attention to the details and making certain our clients are informed every step of the way, is our way of helping people make important decisions as straight-forward and as simple as possible. Our work doesn’t just save time and money for our clients, it also fosters community, engagement and happiness.

We take the time to ask questions, listen carefully and apply best-practices to each project we engage in. And, because we genuinely care about the people who we work with, every collaboration and relationship is built upon mutual trust, empathy and respect.

Basically, we keep the needs of the end-users front and center while taking a unique project delivery approach that integrates workplace strategy, planning and project management. Plus we put our insider industry knowledge to work in ways that make a difference to the bottom line.

More than anything, what makes an entirely tedious process worth the while, is the end result - seeing people smile and hearing their excitement over coming to an office that was designed and optimized just for them.




Our philosophy...

We are firm believers that people deserve to be supported, inspired and empowered by their work environment every day. That's why we are in the business of creating work settings that are meaningful, relevant and resilient for the companies we work with. We're also pretty darn excited about guiding clients through the process of planning, crafting and delivering places of work that are designed with human beings in mind, where the demands of work and life are intended to exist in harmony.

Our work positively impacts people on a daily basis and thereby supports the success of our business partners by making improvements and optimizations that count. That's ultimately what drives us to continuously improve the various ways we provide value through our full-spectrum of service offerings.

In essence, we make the world a better place, one office at a time.
