Corporate Jobs at Crate and Barrel
If you could imagine a Crate and Barrel store turned into offices, you'd be envisioning our dramatic corporate space. Of course, the building had to be a simple yet sensational design if we were going to put our logo on it. But the blueprints had to capture a seamless transfer of energies. A continuous conversation between our stores and our conference rooms. Our offices had to be infused with the character and pulse of our stores to keep our more than 500 corporate associates in daily touch with our customer. And in return, our corporate space needed to signal and generate important services and support to a network of 100 retail stores. And it can't go without saying that it had to be a visual space that would inspire creative product and thinking.
The result is a pleasure to walk into every morning. Located 25 miles north of downtown Chicago and surrounded by expanses of green, groves, and blue skyscraper-less skies, it is a lean horizontal white sculpture in brick, glass, and steel. 173,000 square feet flooded in natural light. Pine walls, slate tiles, graphic fabrics, atrium gardens, a suspension staircase. Home to an amazingly deep roster of in-house operations and departments. Which translates into many opportunities for career growth and change.
