Challenge: A rapidly growing company that locates housing for displaced families found themselves in need of a place to call home. Key Interiors was brought in to create a floor plan, provide finishes and furnish their new construction building in the heart of downtown St. Charles. The 36,000 square foot space was spread out over 3 floors. Our challenge was to create an open, collaborative space with distinct team divisions. The owners requested a neutral, residential aesthetic aligned with the craftsman building style while incorporating both mid-century modern and Asian influences.
Solution: Key Interiors created a central corridor of private offices, placing the team workstations along the perimeter of the building to maximize exterior light and riverfront views. Custom designed, quad workstations with low partitions provided a defined work space within an interactive team unit. “Quick Moment” meeting spaces were placed throughout to encourage movement in a desk bound work environment. The calm, neutral palette gave way to rich textures, with warm woods being the featured element.
