Suzuki + Kidd Architects was hired by Yamato Transport USA to revitalize their Chicago Gateway Branch office which was built in the 1980s and showed critical wear and tear. The design focuses upon spatial fluidity and transparency to achieve enhanced occupant comfort and newly structured spatial organization for better communication. The removal of existing opaque elements allowed for the introduction of transparent and translucent walls, shades, cove lighting, and louvered components as “devices” to achieve the design intention. A new HVAC system, exterior glazing, and LED application improve air quality, thermal comfort, and light levels. Custom designed workstations improve workflow and the overall space efficiency.
