MillerCoors Corporate Headquarters
Chicago, Illinois / United States of America
The New World - Two mammoth companies joining forces after years of intense competition require a special domain. This inspiring workplace recognizes the history of both organizations while maintaining the brand integrity of both cultures. The character of two famed breweries comes together in a new 130,000 square foot Chicago headquarters.
Beer Land - "Beer Land" playfully reinforces the company culture. Milwaukee's famous Cream City brick builds the foundation for a large spiral stair comprised of reclaimed timbers, which leads to a dark wood and brass accented pub. A copper brewing kettle, airlifted into the space, serves as a focal point at reception. A beer delivery truck resides in the lobby. Customized graphics reflect the MillerCoors spirit on each floor, retaining individual identity in a family of beer brands. Communal spaces, a recycling and copy center are located in a middle spine rising through all the floors, creating the vertical heart of the workplace.
Green - Through the building's glass façade generous natural light illuminates the interior space's rhythmically arranged low-panel workstations, reducing energy consumption. Sustainable, low- VOC emitting, high design materials are used throughout. Fun and inspiring, this LEED Silver space encourages employees to enjoy their work.
