The Retrofit

Major design goals were to create an updated, dynamic, high-performance work environment for all employees with spaces reflecting the nature of their work and, of course, featuring Bostik products wherever possible.

Overall inspiration for the flooring designed by Uihlein-Wilson Architects throughout the building came from the sweeping elliptical shape of the new Bostik logo, resulting in large intersecting ellipses and arcs, making the long corridors feel more open and inviting. All flooring patterns were laid out and hand-cut onsite.

The renovation was completed on a fasttrack schedule with limited disruptions. “Without the expertise that comes from a dedicated installer, this design could have been a ‘punch-list nightmare’,” says Tara Lopez, Uihlein-Wilson designer. “It is the opposite—a successful showpiece that exceeded expectations.”
