Located in downtown Indianapolis, Elements Financial is a credit union that has served members since 1920 when it was founded by the management of Eli Lilly and Company.
After weighing the pros and cons of moving versus renovating their existing space, Elements Financial decided to stay on the 3rd floor 22,000 sq. ft. space they had occupied for years. Their priority was to reimagine the space to make it more appealing to current and future employees, improve functionality, and maximize the natural light.
The renovation coincided with a rebranding by the credit union which influenced some of the design decisions made. Among them was a desire for the space to feel vibrant, and updated but not trendy and inviting. A social hub sits at the center of the office. The space, which is used for gathering, coffee pauses, and dining, is highlighted by bright red tones which is a common thread in the rest of the office. A moss wall brings interest and grounds the area.
Throughout the rest of the office, which features exposed columns and is surrounded by windows on all sides, a red line provides wayfinding, leading visitors along to the different neighborhoods. Each one is distinct in its configuration and use of furniture – a decision made to accommodate different work styles and facilitate more ease of work for each department.
