Leading Performance Nutritional Supplement Provider
Downers Grove, Illinois / United States of America
Epstein provided interior architectural and engineering services for a 67,000 square foot North American headquarters for a leading performance nutritional supplement provider. The space occupies the top two floors of a mid-rise office building in Downers Grove, Illinois. The build out includes office space, a fitness center, café, photo studio, and board room.
The design premise was to utilize many of the existing architectural elements while repurposing and reimagining the design to align with the organization’s brand and create an exciting non-corporate environment. An emphasis was placed upon bringing in natural light and keeping the scenic views as accessible as possible.
Large scale graphics enliven the environment and create an interesting dialog within the workplace. One of the other key design features is the fitness center. Originally a single story conference center, the new design takes advantage of the double height that had previously been hidden while repurposing existing millwork. The space has a gritty quality that will also serve as an ad hoc studio for photo shoots. The enclosed offices and open work areas are designed to encourage collaboration, afford seated privacy, enable flexibility and reinforce the organization’s culture and brand.
