Google Chicago Headquarters is located in the city’s historic West Loop neighborhood. The seven-floor office was formerly a windowless cold storage warehousing facility. The transformed space includes a dedicated lobby for Google employees, conference space, themed office, meeting space, and a café with a full-service kitchen.
The design team focused on creating healthy environments that inspire and empower employees. Early on, Google held a visioning session with the future building occupants and compiled wish lists and ideas. A small group of employees worked with the design team throughout the process to provide feedback on features that would directly affect the employees’ work environment. The final design preserves the industrial bones of the historic building while facilitating effective daylighting and strong connections with the outdoors while creating central gathering places where employees can come together.
Malko provided many services throughout the facility.
