Scotsman, the world's largest manufacturer of commercial ice machines, was looking to relocate their North American headquarters to Vernon Hills, Illinois.
With the help of Leopardo and Garnett Architects, Scotsman was able to design the perfect space to showcase their multiple product lines and provide a functional space for their employees. This 90,000 square foot renovation and build-out took only 12 short weeks and consisted of 2 full floors outfitted with private offices, workstations, conference rooms, training spaces, and multiple lounge areas.
Low panels and an open floor plan lent to the natural surroundings of the building. This allowed for an abundance of natural light throughout the space. Along with some pops of orange and blue, the headquarters is dotted with industrial elements such as a metal staircase with a grid screen, modern light fixtures and exposed beams. Coupled with the bright white walls, large windows and natural light, this headquarters remodel was a success for Scotsman.
