This liquor distributor’s corporate office highlights the company’s notable history with sleek, modern interior design. It promotes products and provides employees and sales representatives with flexible, high performing workspaces.

Honoring the history of the first alcohol distribution company in the state to be granted a liquor license, the interior design of this corporate office space respects the past while looking to the future. The company’s purpose and branding are readily apparent upon entry into the two-story, atrium main lobby, which features an adjacent, glass-walled tasting room with a bar. Lit shelving on the custom bar backing highlights the company’s wide range of distribution products.

The distributorship’s headquarters also includes a private executive suite, a convertible sales training room that can transform into three meeting rooms, a combination of open office and private office spaces and two large breakrooms. Flooring throughout emulates the warm woods of bourbon barrels, and inset leather panels in the reception desk speak to history and tradition. A traditional-meets-modern approach is expressed through a sleek staircase, complete with a cable handrail and a built-in planter below providing bench seating and accent lighting. A coffered ceiling and an expansive wood veneer panel stretches two-stories behind the reception desk.

A separate sales reception entry provides a locker station for sales representatives to store their liquor products upon arrival. Pops of color, art and texture help define various conference/meeting spaces and staff areas. Bright, lively breakrooms offer multiple types of seating options—bar, lounge, booth and table—for employees to relax and unwind.

The interior design team worked closely with the client, user groups and the general contractor to deliver construction documents within an expedited timeframe.
