Anheuser-Busch wanted an experiential workplace - equal parts office and events space. OTJ Architects set to the task and designed an adaptable and functional space that serves every purpose: open office space for the day to day functions of Anheuser-Busch’s lobbying arm, flexible conference space with movable glass partitions, and a beautiful, round-robin bar as the centerpiece.
Pizzano Contractors coordinated closely with the design team and Anheuser-Busch to bring their plans to life. Specialty and custom finishes were installed throughout the space with beechwood slat ceilings (used for Budweiser barrels) as a special homage to the brand. Highlighting the space is the circular bar decked in emerald green, a reference to the uniforms of Budweiser’s Clydesdale hitch drivers.
“As an architect you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown.”
