The result : The artwork designed on the office building façade created a more engaging streetscape , and murals featured prominently inside the workplace added personality and locality to the space .
Located at the heart of the office , “ Love Works Here ” by Chicago-based muralists Mosher and Sentrock speaks to the client ’ s people , historic building location , and beloved city of Chicago . Beginning with the Chicago skyline on one end , the mural transitions into a scene of people packaging hearts into envelopes , paying tribute to the building ’ s past as the city ’ s post office while conveying company values of inclusivity . commARCH // 73
