Pity the nine-to-fivers who spend their waking hours entombed in a corporate prison. When we decided to ditch our dreary office building, we enlisted CB2 to help kit out a cosier, less expensive new home base. The following pages detail the renovation, where we added homey touches to our new hive of productivity.

Every office should offer ample liquid rewards (and therapy) for their hardworking staff.
