Goose Island Atrium

 
 

Goose Island Atrium

Located on the North Branch of Chicago's Goose Island, the concept design for this 280,000 sf building involves the conversion of what was once a furniture factory into a creative office space.

At the ground level, the design incorporates a cafe concept with enormous garage-style windows that allow the indoor dining space to be extended outside.

As one enters the interior gallery, which is enclosed by the glass atrium, they are guided by the refurbished train tracks that once ran through the island. Flooded with natural light, the gallery brings the outdoors inside with a massive green wall that nearly extends the length of the building. All of these elements are continued into the exterior gallery, which includes additional seating and a refurbished train car.

Ivy Room at Tree Studios

 
 

Ivy Room at Tree Studios

Located in Chicago's River North neighborhood, the historic Tree Studios houses the Ivy Room and its annexed courtyard. Built in 1894, the historic space serves as a venue for special events.

Interior renovations were made on the first floor and lower level of the space to support in-house catering services. This work involved upgrades to the commercial kitchen.

The versatility of the space is enhanced through the integration of sophisticated room divides; these partitions make it possible for multiple functions to occur at the same time on the first floor. Renovation work extended to include interior finish updates, improve soundproofing, and create a pre-function wet bar space on the lower level.
