Resignation Media recently completed an impressive 14,000 square-foot office building in Austin, Texas complete with bars, beer chutes, community lounges and functional work spaces. Marrying the jovial brand with a practical environment, the space is headquarters to comical entertainment site, theCHIVE, a burgeoning beer line, Resignation Brewery and a non-profit philanthropic effort, Chive Charities, among others. The $4M renovation took 18 months to complete and now hosts 72 employees, meeting spaces, executive offices and a custom, two-story adult slide that quickly transports riders to the office’s bottom floor.
In addition to brand consistent theming throughout the structure, theCHIVE’s emphasis on ‘uniting community’ was reinforced by consciously designing communal spaces that could easily morph from a professional business setting into a casual social house, promoting work-related mingling.
The interior and space design is a result of the collaborative work between Jamie Chioco and Vanessa Francis at Chioco Design and Leo Resig, CEO at Resignation Media. Modern tones are united with exposed, natural textures and fun colors to create an environment that preserves the company’s motto, “Keep Calm and Chive On.” [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Resignation Media]
