The design objective for Coopers & Lybrand’s Chicago office was to create an environment for Coopers & Lybrand, one of the Big 5 accounting and consulting firms, that projected an image of a progressive and innovative organization.
Mekus Tanager’s solution incorporates building standard finishes to minimize the total project cost, while using tenant upgrades in select areas as architectural features of “punctuation” to create the desired image. These special features also defined major activity areas and assisted the staff and guests in orientation and movement on the enlarge floor plates.
To provide optimal flexibility for growth and change, all offices and workstations were standardized and wired to accommodate personal computers via a reserved outlet network. Consequently, not only were they able to reorganize by industry, but they were able to grow easily and to purchase and absorb new companies within the same plan concept.
