LABI

 

In 2018, the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry (LABI) sought to reinvigorate their brand and physical space in order to appeal to a more diverse and an increasingly younger membership. Designed by EskewDumezRipple in partnership with Colleen Waguespack Interiors, the LABI Center for Free Enterprise is a 15,000-sq ft collaboration hub for business, policy makers and community leaders from around the state. Located in a restored 1880s warehouse on 5th and Main Street in downtown Baton Rouge, the Center is just a short walk from the State Capitol, giving members better access to government decision makers.

 

The interiors were inspired by the cultural and natural landscape of southern Louisiana. Since the organization represents over 2,000 companies, the Conference Center is a key aspect of the design. Located on the first floor, the flexible, multi-use space can seat up to 150 people and easily transforms from a coffee lounge to a training room to the perfect viewing spot for game days. In addition to a comfortable living space, the Center includes a professional kitchen, an outdoor entertaining space, and a recording studio. The second floor includes private offices, open plan workstations and additional lounge spaces for LABI employees and members to work, meet and conduct business while in town. With a variety of spaces designed to facilitate conversation and innovation, LABI provides the greater business community with a cutting edge, welcoming environment to connect, collaborate and further professional development and civic engagement.
