Eli Lilly Integrated Workspace


Civic plaza at Indianapolis International Airport will greet fans and families for the NCAA's march madness.

Synthesis Incorporated is accustomed to creating solutions to complex design scopes. This project involved the concept of creating a “bridge” between three separate buildings to close the ‘horseshoe’ for the Indianapolis-based pharmaceutical campus.

This pivotal project for Eli Lilly and Company’s global marketing team, included 325,000 square feet of integrated open concept office space. Synthesis led the design team to create a solution that resulted in the renovation of three existing buildings and connecting them with one new building which resulted in a dedicated courtyard in the new donut footprint.

The new building served to emphasize the brand of the marketing business component, create linkage efficiency for the entire building complex and consolidate departments thereby resolving the space requirements.

The integrated design solution incorporated architecture, interior design and landscape architecture elements seamlessly, creating a cohesive work environment and a welcoming global headquarters.
