Earles Architects and Associates (EAA) has completed the redesign of a 11,000-square-foot office space at 125 S. Wacker Drive in Chicago for G&S Business Communications, a global public relations and marketing firm based in New York.
Approximately 6,000 square feet of the larger office was redesigned to create an open, contemporary environment that reflects the work style and creative focus of the company. The new layout includes strategically placed gathering places that allow employees to share ideas, meet to discuss projects and entertain clients.
EAA created a floor plan that incorporates textures, graphics and natural building materials that reinforce the firm’s branding throughout the space. One key focal point is the large conference room, which features a dramatic floor-to-ceiling glass enclosure and a bold wall design with rough wood planks turned on an angle. The new space was integrated seamlessly into the existing space, which includes offices lining the perimeter of the building.
