International pharmaceutical company, Lundbeck, commissioned NELSON to provide interior design services for its 70,000 SF office space in Deerpark, IL. Paramount to their needs was creating a connection with their European heritage while decreasing square footage and curating an open environment that still maintained a sense of privacy.
To ease the team’s apprehensions of a non-office environment, the plan included various choices such as traditional conference rooms, huddle rooms, phones rooms, and lounge spaces. Technology was carefully integrated into the design and the inclusion of natural light infiltration was a must. Complete with subtle branding and nods to the company’s Danish history, the space is colorful and warm.
The completed design evokes a sense of history while incorporating the client’s requests to be more representative of an open office environment.
