The detail and execution of this private workplace creates a transporting experience. The office is at once one with the city and a tranquil oasis of calm. The organization’s founder amassed an impressive collection of art and an appreciation of Eastern design principles through extensive travel in Asia. That affinity helped shape this space that balances understated ambiance with moments of powerful beauty.
Designed to curate a sense of journey and discovery, the workspace offers various degrees of inviting, light-filled settings to nurture meaningful relationships across an array of spaces spanning lounges, dining areas, a library, meeting rooms, work environments and a game room.
Throughout, the space is filled with the client’s extensive collection of modern and Asian art that proves as critical to the design as any other feature. A 24-foot high, two-story winter garden, with remarkable views overlooking the Chicago River, also helps define the space as a multi-dimensional feature to host meetings, events, exhibitions or relaxation.
It’s not often one walks into an office and feels a sense of calm and utter tranquility.Architectural Record
Together, these unique elements—art, location, experience, the stunning views of the Chicago skyline—unite to create both a zen-like and gallery experience for staff and guests alike.
