RATIO knew they needed to stay downtown in the Wholesale District. With their focus on urban and campus design, keeping their space in a mostly-vacant building was an easy decision. Their location in the Ober Building places them in the heart of downtown and provides a sense of connection to the city. The recognizable Business Furniture sign and proximity to Bankers Life Fieldhouse are highly visible by local residents and visitors.
Understanding this, RATIO opened up their space, not just inside, but also outside. Their re-designed space applies their own sophisticated touch, with special consideration for the building’s history and a commitment to the environment. The phased renovation encompassed two floors of existing space and exterior features. Several unique design elements were incorporated throughout, such as a suspended feature wall, glass cube vestibule entrance, wood slat wall and a stair retro-fit with metal-clad side panels and stainless steel handrails.
