What's Apartment Therapy doing at a big corporate office? Ah, that's because this isn't your typical commercial workspace. CEO and founder Gay Gaddis has put her personal touch onto just about every corner of her company's Austin headquarters.

T3, short for The Think Tank, prides itself on approaching problems from different perspectives to arrive at winning (though sometimes unconventional) strategies. So when T3 started to outgrow their original facilities - a plot of small converted and segregated homes - that same philosophy took hold. Instead of simply moving into a larger corporate office, why not hire the same architects that she worked with for her home to create a thoughtful open space where workers are free to roam, exchange ideas, and stay engaged with one another?
