Bruce Bolander just sent over their most recent project. The Chicago office of the international editorial company, The Whitehouse Post is so well designed. I love the minimalist approach along with the carefully placed spots of bright color. This work space is not over cluttered, enabling all of the smaller details to bee seen and recognized. The space is bright and open, who wouldn’t want to work here? Images by Mike Schwartz
After looking at larger spaces in other buildings the entire fifth floor became available and Bolander saw the potential in the 19 foot ceilings and nearly full-height windows. Original elements had been removed and dark wood paneling and trim were added in renovations over the years. The main goals of this renovation were to expose original brick and structural steel and bring more light into the 17,000 sq. ft. space. The light tone of the exposed brick, wood slats and white epoxy floors help to brighten the office. Steel desks, plywood tables and some Modernica sofas are designed by Bolander. The rest of the furniture is mostly vintage with new fabric to add needed color.
