Central Coast – Chicago Offices

  • Client Central Coast,
  • size 6,000 sqft
  • Year 2012
  • Location Chicago, Illinois, United States,
  • Industry Advertising / Marketing,
  • CannonDesign designed the new office space of Central Coast located in Chicago, Illinois.

    A lot is packed into Central Coast’s 6,000 sf office. The number of people in the office is very fluid and totally dependent on active project work. One week there can only be a handful of people, while the next finds every seat occupied. The office accommodates these fluctuations through a cleverly designed use of space.

    A single big move—the canopy in Central Coast’s brand color—pulls one into the space, frames the views of Chicago’s downtown, and finally becomes a work bench. The rest of the plan was left as open as possible and filled with movable furniture that can easily be reconfigured to the needs of the project. Still, smart details abound, such as the stadium seating area made of reclaimed wood that backs onto bar seating. Everything here serves multiple purposes.
