CSR, Incorporated, an employee owned small business, offers professional government, private, and nonprofit organizations the knowledge and tools to make informed policy choices. Their expertise and services address a wide range of issues in varied arenas, such as social services, juvenile and criminal justice, health policy and disease prevention, economics, and education.
CSR’s former space was a mostly closed environment and they desired to shift to an open concept that promoted interaction and collaboration. FOX created a space that aligned workstations adjacent to the window line and offices lining the interior to filter in natural light. Collaboration and impromptu interactions were supported through huddle rooms that were integrated throughout the space using a mixture of work styles such as lounges, bar height tables, and standard seating. To create a flexible environment, the café doubled as a catering room situated next to the conference center, allowing for special events.
FOX’s interiors and graphics studio worked with CSR to ensure a seamless integration and development of the organization’s new brand identity. The final design concept manifested from a “bright path” of enlightenment to express stability, balance, and integrity.
