Coeur Mining, Inc. enlisted SCB to assist them with the relocation of their corporate headquarters from Idaho to Chicago. This high-profile move for the company required a review of personnel needs and ultimately a change in their workforce. Coeur was attracted to downtown Chicago to gain better access the talent pool from neighboring universities, as well as the accessibility offered by a major international airport.
The office space was designed to incorporate Coeur’s brand standards and showcased various artifacts of precious metals where they mine. The space features an internal stair that serves as a focal point in the guest/reception area, connecting the two contiguous floors the company occupies. The stair is reminiscent of a mining shaft, further emphasizing the company’s brand throughout the workplace. Choosing to juxtapose this modern aesthetic within the context of a historic landmark, SCB achieved the client’s goal of creating a forward-thinking, sophisticated new home for a company rich with history and global reach.
