American Society for Surgery of the Hand | Chicago, Illinois
When this professional association was searching for a new location, it spotted an intriguing corner building at the gateway to an up-and-coming West Loop neighborhood. MRSA performed the due diligence, put together a budget for capital improvement, helped find a contractor and managed the entire construction project. We gutted the building and transformed it into a truly innovative workspace. The association’s space includes many features that have now become trends—an open office with adjustable work stations, a fishbowl conference room, a kitchen/lounge area with leather furniture, treadmill desks, and an “Innovation Ranch” for brainstorming complete with a treehouse. This custom design reflects and enables a unique culture built on innovation.
