  • For Wabash Valley, a local egg processor and supplier, it was time to renovate their corporate headquarters to match the strength of their product. The goals for this design were to improve the Wabash Valley brand image, visitor experience, employee work environment and work-floor efficiency.

    This renovation and addition includes offices; a larger kitchen and relaxation space for staff; an outdoor gathering space; an improved and welcoming lobby; flexible display space; a board room and more. The addition also provides new executive offices and updated restrooms, allowing for additional employees in the main office.

    The project features a natural, biophilic aesthetic with greens and blues, wood elements, and an abundance of textures and natural light. Before, the space left you feeling closed in and uncomfortable with the low ceiling heights and cramped layout. Now, glass walls open the space visually and allow natural light to pour into the core of the space, providing a brighter and friendlier environment. Unique lighting, curated and custom art, greenery, and other accessories complete the space.

    This new, updated office environment for Wabash Valley places a priority on the well-being and productivity of its employees, while celebrating the company’s values and culture. It’s also a warm and inviting space to host clients and other visitors.
