Closerlook is a digital marketing agency for pharmaceutical companies. Experiencing rapid growth, they needed to expand their office in a River North brick and timber loft to a second floor. Closerlook's management team was concerned that the physical separation of staff in a two floor office would be detrimental to office culture and requested a strong physical connection to unite the two floors.
As a part of our design solution, Eastlake connected the two floors with a monumental stair and gathered the office’s primary public spaces around it. Adjacent to the reception, an inviting cafe and client meeting room surround the base of the stair. Above, a sun-filled staff hoteling area and open meeting space around the balcony. The result is a dynamic town center that supports informal interaction among staff and nurtures a stronger Closerlook community.
