Holabird & Root Wraps Work at Denovo Group Corporate Offices

Holabird & Root recently completed the buildout of the new corporate headquarters for the Denovo Group, which now comprises over 20,000 sq. ft. of office space on Wacker Drive.  

The space was formerly occupied by a downtown University and the new design for Denovo transformed the existing layout from a light-deprived series of corridors to an open, contemporary office space that captures views of the Chicago River.  

The design features a new entry lobby and logo wall that establishes Denovo’s identity and brand at the corridor, and welcomes visitors into the new office space.  

The project also includes a mix of large private offices for the managing directors, a series of staff offices, and modular workspace for employees who spend most of their time out of the office.  The design made use of demountable glass partitions to give the project a clean and open look.  Since the partitions were manufactured off site, they also facilitated project phasing and the acceleration of the overall schedule.  The result is an effective use of existing conditions mixed with new elements that provide Denovo with the clean looking, contemporary office they desired.

Senior Interior Designer Andrea Caputo, Project Designer Cory Kamholz, and Interior Designer Erin Patterson served as key team members on this buildout.
