A new Fulton Market workplace embraces Kroll’s transformed brand to support their business goals.
Kroll wanted their new Chicago workplace to reflect their values and facilitate a seamless experience across their full suite of services. They used the opportunity to highlight their recent acquisition and showcase the newly
transformed brand in a fresh and inviting setting. Having worked with Kroll to deliver their workplace in Boston, we were selected to employ our integrated approach to complete a high-quality space.
Working closely with the decision-making team, we learned their existing space didn’t support key business goals, particularly around attracting and retaining young talent. Kroll looked to us to reinvent their workplace experience by incorporating various amenities and multi-use spaces, and emphasizing the firm’s refreshed brand to encourage camaraderie in the office post-pandemic. We worked with their teams to implement a hybrid workplace strategy and reduce their total footprint. Through strategy sessions and multiple design reviews, we brought their design vision to reality.
Drawing inspiration from the office building in Fulton Market, the space’s themes are aspirational, refined casual, and sustainable. Using a neighborhood scheme, the layout blends functionality with flexibility using integrated technology. We embraced elements of the building to emphasize the views and airy ceiling heights, and positioned primary areas like the boardroom, the café, and collaborative touchdowns on the perimeter to maximize access to natural light. Daylighting and biophilia such as a green wall and potted and hanging greenery give the office a natural and warm ambiance. By updating their color palette with sophisticated jewel tones, implementing clean lines, and mixing textural finishes and materials, we created a truly unique space.
The completed workplace brings to life Kroll’s new modern and casual branding, creating a multi-dimensional workplace experience. Throughout the project we collaborated seamlessly with the stakeholders and internal project team, leveraging our proprietary software to progress the project forward despite Covid-related challenges and scope changes. Kroll is excited to bring their staff into its new office and showcase their refreshed vision for the future.
