Indigo Offices - Commercial Interior
Commercial interior for a software developer in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Chicago. Design by ERA / Eric Rothfeder Architect.
Indigo is a developer of educational support software located in a converted warehouse building in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Chicago. The renovation responds to their desire to preserve the material and character of the existing concrete structure, while creating an improved collaborative work environment with better acoustics, privacy and lighting. Offices walls are lined with custom CNC-cut recycled polyester felt panels mounted on sliding tracks. The felt panels can be stacked to reveal ample whiteboard space for collaborative work, or spread out to maximize their acoustic properties and dampen the office noise level. Glass walls separate work area from conference rooms, where acoustic felt panels are installed as part of an ceiling system integrated with the lighting, fire safety and mechanical systems. A new kitchenette punctuates the space with dark grey millwork and a gradient of blues, which transitions into a long banquette to provide both kitchen and collaborative work seating.
