Bridgeport/McKinley Park, Chicago, illinois

Built in 1915, this historic post and beam building has been completely renovated into affordable and sustainable commercial office spaces for creative professionals. The client’s goal is to assemble a “living laboratory” of like-minded businesses to collaborate on ideas and services related to evolving green technologies. To this end, the building renovation includes several sustainable features such as a massive geothermal system to significantly reduce energy consumption and water usage. Simplifying and highlighting each of the original architectural elements preserves the building’s authentic character.
