Marwen Foundation

Designed by Wheeler Kearns Architects, this award-winning, three-story loft is located in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. The mission of the building’s owner, Marwen Foundation, is to expose disadvantaged youth to art. The renovation of this historic timber-frame loft included designs for an office, school, studio and gallery. Special attention was paid to create an artistic environment throughout. The American Institute of Architects, AIA, honored this renovation with an award in 2000.
