Project Description

 

Mekus Tanager assisted The University of Chicago with interior design services and the selection and procurement of furniture and finishes for the new 430,000-square foot Ellen and Melvin Gordon Center for Integrative Science (CIS) building. The new building was designed to enhance collaboration and promote the sharing of ideas among researchers in both the physical, chemical, and biological sciences.

 

As a member of the CIS project design team, Mekus Tanager was responsible for updating and verifying the program requirements for the non-laboratory spaces of the project. After meeting with user-groups from the ten science research institutes to be located in the new building, Mekus Tanager created a unique new set of space occupancy standards for the project. The new occupancy standards provided a consistent interior design concept and standardized furniture and finishes for the project that were flexible and interchangeable over time. They also offered each researcher a method to customize their offices/workstations to fit their own functional requirements and tastes.
