Welcome to our Chicago studio

Revolutionary ideas are what change the world. In our global firm’s founding studio, we explore these ideas together. We occupy the top of the historic Wrigley Building on the banks of the Chicago River. Driven by design excellence, purpose, and innovation, we embrace Chicago’s work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit: relationships are our greatest asset.

We support each other with the goal of creating amazing work.

We know people thrive when they can be themselves, doing what they love, and doing it for great clients. We celebrate individuals and teams because it strengthens the whole studio. Whether enjoying the outdoor terrace or working on “The Cloud”—our collaboration space beneath the cupola of the Wrigley Building’s North Tower—we nurture a sense of belonging.

We break down barriers.
Our Women Build Team volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, helping build homes and raise money for women-led families in Chicago.

Fun Fact
Our 18th floor lounge is called “The Cloud,” inspired by the clouds that used to be painted on the inside of the Wrigley Building's cupola. In 1921, this space was called the Cloud Room, and served as the Wrigley Company’s executive dining room.
Thank You, Healthcare Heroes!
The Chicago studio wants to express our deep gratitude to the extraordinary healthcare workers at the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for all that you do to keep us safe!
