Kitchens of Sara Lee (KoSL)
Downer's Grove, IL

With its corporate headquarters in Chicago, Sara Lee chose Hixson to develop a multi-phased renovation project for its new corporate R&D center. The buildings house product office space, development team centers, labs, test kitchens, and pilot plant operations: R&D operations in a highly technical, highly regulated environment. The Hixson team provided both the architecture and interiors to create the collaboration of personnel and customer interface, as well as the high-technology engineering to deliver rigorous product testing requirements.
