Breathing New Life into a Former Kellogg Facility

The CARFAX Renovation

The renovation of CARFAX’s office space serves as an exceptional example of adaptive reuse within a heritage building. Initially part of the historic Kellogg manufacturing facility in London, Ontario, this space has now been transformed to meet the modern needs of over 230 staff members while preserving its storied past.

Under the insightful design vision of Matter Architectural Studio, the renovation carefully intertwined contemporary design elements with the industrial character of the original structure. This thoughtful approach not only honors the building’s history but also creates an inspiring environment for today’s tech-savvy workforce.

A Fusion of Tradition and Innovation

The redesigned space offers a perfect blend of collaborative environments and individual workspaces, fostering a sense of community and creativity.

Innovative Wall Space

Almost every white wall in the office doubles as a whiteboard, encouraging continuous creativity and idea-sharing.

Kitchen and Work Café

Complete with cozy booths, this area encourages informal meetings and socialization.

Fun Zone and Games Centre

A specially designated area for relaxation and team bonding, emphasizing the importance of work-life balance.

This renovation goes beyond just updating a workspace; it represents a significant investment in the people who work there. By creating an environment that promotes collaboration, innovation, and relaxation, CARFAX Canada not only supports the well-being of their team but also solidifies their position as a leader in the fast-growing technology and digital media industry.

The CARFAX renovation is a testament to the power of thoughtful design and the value of blending history with modernity. It stands as an inspiring example of how spaces can be reimagined to meet contemporary needs while honoring their rich heritage.
