CBRE Chicago

Chicago, Illinois

In relocating its downtown Chicago office, this worldwide commercial real estate company sought increased collaboration among its employees. In conjunction with CBRE’s “Workplace 360” initiative, the new office eliminates assigned desks, providing instead a variety of workspaces, ranging from private offices to individual free-address workstations, and huddle rooms to lounge settings that culminate in the central “heart.” The new environment encourages employees to choose their work settings and be more mobile and connected. Within the clean, open space, refined materials – stone, steel and glass – and attention to detail contrasts with the exposed ceiling systems to achieve a contemporary and urban workplace.
