KSM Chicago
Zen central.
Bringing energy and tranquility into balance.
Putting the Ommm in competitive edge.
Following an expansion and renovation, Kelly Scott Madison (KSM)’s corporate headquarters truly reflect the agency’s commitment to workplace well-being. Emulating tree-dappled sunlight, a blue, custom-perforated ceiling exudes calm. A multipurpose room hosts daily meditations and yoga classes and provides flexible workspace. In the café, a live moss wall adds a touch of the outdoors. Throughout the space, whimsical details—including plush indoor swings and a tiled Scrabble wall—invite employees to enjoy a moment of play.

The completed design captures KSM’s unique blend of creative energy and corporate zen and encourages a more balanced approach to work. A welcome respite, the new headquarters prioritizes the physical and mental health of KSM's employees— and proves that even in an intensely competitive field, there's always room for a little fun.
