Modern Adaptive Reuse

Chicago, IL

This project took a dilapidated old perfume factory and inserted a modern steel and glass structure within the high Chicago common brick walls. The new space was filled with light by creating several interior courtyards and light wells. The result was a private, yet bright and airy sequence of spaces oriented towards the sun. The entry was detailed to appear as if the corner of the building was split open to reveal the modernist structure within.
