American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana
Founded in 1920, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to defending and protecting the individual rights and personal freedoms of all.
After the 2016 election, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Indiana decided to renovate their 8,000 square-foot office space. The two-level space near downtown Indianapolis had not been updated for many years, which resulted in quirks like a break room in which both the microwave and water heater were housed side by side.
studioAXIS re-imagined the space, ensuring that it was welcoming to all. The design includes several graphic elements developed as a collaboration between the client, studioAXIS and a local advertising agency that speak to the ACLU’s mission. From the walls to the stairwells to the elevator shaft, the space is filled with vivid reminders of all the ACLU does to protect the rights and freedoms of individuals. New furniture was also supplied by Purposeful Design, a company whose mission it is to rebuild the lives of those broken by addiction or homelessness and equips them with valuable work skills.
