If you are forced to spend 40+ hours a week in one place it should at least look cool, right? We took it upon ourselves to track down six stunning office spaces around the city that go above and beyond when providing their employees with a visually stimulating environment. These companies have created offices that do more than just look cool–they provide their employees with unique amenities, motivating workplaces and casual places to collaborate. If you are looking for some design inspiration, a new job or are just a cubical-bound dreamer than this is the post for you.
Here are six inspiring Chicago office spaces:
Gensler: Global architecture, design, planning and consulting firm
Gensler chose this office space because it allowed them to keep their 200 Chicago employees on one floor, letting office culture grow organically. The space's open floorplan is spiced up by historical accents such as the large carved white columns that glow, illuminated by discrete lights in the floor. A centrally located library was built to engage both employees and clients of the global architecture firm and encourage them to collaborate on new ideas.
MAKE: Design and illustration studio
MAKE’s team of designers recently renovated their offices, turning an empty loft into a relaxed, homey and practical space. The MAKE offices are full of well-curated bookshelves, inspirational artwork and whiteboards used to keep track of current projects. A photo-diary of the MAKE offices transformation can be found on their blog.
