Enjoy a behind-the-scenes peek inside this month's inspiring office in Frederick - Welocalize. Welocalize's office is located within the Glass Factory, a 17,000-square-foot structure that was built as a cannery in the early 1900s. It was previously a tailor company and also a window factory. Today, the renovated warehouse space is home to a variety of companies in Downtown Frederick. 

Co-Owners Smith and Julia Yewell answered a few questions about what they love about their office space inside of the Glass Factory. 

Why did you choose your current office location and how long has Welocalize been located here?

Welocalize has called this location (241 E. 4th Street) home since the fall of 1997 and chose the location for the proximity to our family and charm of old town Frederick. Frederick has a lot to offer to the community and is a great place to work, live and raise a family.

Was it "move in" ready or did you have to design/fit it out?
The office space was wide open, unfinished and inviting, which gave us a great opportunity and ability to mold the space to the way we envisioned for ourselves and staff at Welocalize.

What inspirations did you use to decorate/design the space?
The Glass Factory building is quite unique and has plenty of history within its walls. Together with the owner of the property, we tried to preserve the old look and use the elements of the old factory to create an airy feel of the modern office space.

What are the most unique aspects about your office space?
The materials that are used in the space as well as the decor. The building owner has an interesting taste, to say the least.

What do your employees like best about the office space?
Our employees love the high ceilings and natural light!
