Historic landmark building by Louis Sullivan
After 19 years of working in downtown office space, Studio V Partners Peter and Pooja Vukosavich decided that working "local" was the right move, and purchased this architectural gem. A gut renovation followed before moving the firm's offices in 2007. Since then, the building has won architectural awards and attracted considerable media attention.
Today, most of us walk, bike, or have short commutes to work. Energy comes from three coffee shops down the block. When we need some blue sky for creativity, we step into the meditative peace of the Zen garden out back. If we need a boost of urban energy, we work in the front conference room as the city walks by just a few feet away.
It all comes back to an environment that fosters creativity, and a way of working that encourages sustainability.
