When Tim Slaughter and his partners at Caddo Office Reimagined entered the world of coworking spaces in 2019, they acquired existing properties from another developer, Scott Yeager.
Yeager’s original spaces were rebranded as “Caddo,” named in honor of the fearless yellow lab belonging to Caddo founders’ late friend, Chris Thevenet. The buildings needed a refresh too, so Kim Gill and Brad Hatton of Seventy Sixty-One Designs were enlisted to renovate the properties, starting with Caddo’s McKinney location.
The vision for the redesign was clear.
“Our buildings are in suburban areas. We want them to feel homey. We want to be a part of your neighborhood,” says Slaughter.
While other developers erect cookie-cutter coworking spaces, Caddo endeavors to be an extension of the community.
With the renovation of the McKinney location, Gill and Hatton maintained respect for the original property, but elevated the aesthetic. The updated design is clean and modern with eclectic, playful touches that make it approachable and welcoming.
Caddo has eight locations across DFW and will break ground on a ninth in North Richland Hills this fall. From Frisco to Prosper to Lakewood, every Caddo location is unified by a lively, cheerful color palette. The coworking spaces feature plant-filled atriums bathed in natural light and eye-catching fixtures, many of which are repurposed industrial objects.
Caddo is committed to providing members (and day guests) with spaces that solve the problems of small business owners. Conference rooms are available for reservation, common areas are perfect for meeting with clients or enjoying lunch, and 24-hour access means you can set your ideal hours.
While all Caddo locations share a consistent color scheme, essential elements, and commitment to members, each location has its own distinctive personality.
Located at 4324 Mapleshade Lane off the George Bush Turnpike, Caddo’s Plano South location reflects a university aesthetic, a nod to nearby UTD. Inviting, comfortable chairs and sofas beckon members to enjoy a cup of coffee with coworkers or clients, and playful paper airplanes soar across a mural upstairs.
Located at 2201 Spinks Road, this location’s design pays homage to neighboring DFW airport and the nexus of several major highways. A cartoon map of the area and several old maps of Denton County adorn the space which also features backlit three dimensional wood panels. As with all Caddo spaces, there’s plenty of room to entertain clients or take a break from work in the comfortable and beautiful common areas.
North Richland Hills
Once ground is broken on this location, it will include all the amenities Caddo members expect: spacious conference rooms, light-filled spaces, and eclectic design. As always, Gill and Hatton will honor the surrounding community with their design. This location will feature southwestern elements and have the feel of a boutique Sante Fe Hotel.
