Inside Industry West’s Brand New Jacksonville Office
Industry West, a U.S. furniture company that manufactures industrial and modern furniture for restaurants, hotels, high-tech startups and residences, recently opened a new office and showroom in Jacksonville, Florida, designed by architecture & design firm ELM.
“ELM redesigned one of the highest-profile buildings in the iconic San Marco Square historic shopping district to accommodate the new retail and office showroom for Industry West, a progressive e-commerce furniture company. After being occupied by Stellers Gallery for nearly three decades, the renovated 4,030-square-foot retail storefront is being transformed from its previously highly-divided floor plan into an open, free-flowing workspace that will provide a fresh presence for Industry West to welcome clients to its growing company. Enhancements to the building’s exterior will enhance the arrival to San Marco Square and welcome visitors by introducing transparent 14-foot-tall glass storefront windows to take full advantage of the building’s prominent location in San Marco Square on Atlantic Boulevard. Anchored around a unique central meeting room, the redesigned interior emerges from a welcoming gallery and innovative display wall near the entry to flexible workspaces, private offices, and a lounge in the rear of the building, creating a quality, inspired work environment for employees and guests. ELM’s design exposes the historic character of the ceiling structure and eliminates most interior walls. The result is a new, fresh, and dynamic environment consistent with the innovative, high-quality look and feel of Industry West’s products.”
