Architects Brininstool + Lynch designed this award-winning gallery located in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. The original character of the building defined its renovation, as all of the loft’s brick walls, timber framing and wooden floors were restored. To highlight the gallery, a new series of floating partitions, freestanding displays, translucent glass and backlit lighting were incorporated to create a modern environment for viewing art. The American Institute of Architects, AIA, honored this renovation with an award in 1996.
