Vital Proteins Offices – Chicago

Vital Proteins has opened the doors to their modern Chicago work environment, a California-inspired lifestyle office that connects the wellness brand to their core values of health, wellbeing and natural beauty.

  • Client Vital Proteins,
  • size 26,000 sqft
  • Year 2019
  • Location Chicago, Illinois, United States,
  • Industry Food / Beverage,
  • Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB) recently completed the design of the Vital Proteins offices, a wellness company located in Chicago, Illinois.

    Vital Proteins, a collagen-based wellness company, selected SCB to design their new 26,000-square-foot headquarters in Chicago’s vibrant Fulton Market District.

    SCB worked closely with VP’s leadership through an extensive programming effort to identify key space needs, strategies to accommodate a growing workforce, and unique amenities that support the dynamic and evolving organization. The exposed brick and concrete of the original loft building are complemented by natural design elements. White-washed wood, green walls, vibrant visuals and geometric elements made from authentic, sustainable materials create the laid-back, coastal ambiance. The workplace promotes communication and teamwork and is connected by a “boardwalk” that serves as the main circulation path through the space. A central two-story atrium features a cafe and a large social stair used for gatherings and presentations by influencers, brand partners, and clients.

    The resulting design is a modern, California inspired “lifestyle office” that facilitates an emotional connection to the company’s brand pillars: health and wellness, fitness, and natural beauty.
