We transformed a 20,000 square foot bow truss warehouse into a glass roof illuminated food and beverage industry co-working center in the West Loop. Working with our client to define the scope, we carved out spaces for private offices, office pods, meeting rooms, a commercial kitchen, and two bars. We added a second floor and strategically placed openings to allow light to flow to the main level so every space has access to natural light. This adaptive reuse building is now home to CoLaboratory, Chicago’s first food-centric shared workplace.
