We’ve toured the offices of dozens and dozens of architecture firms in Chicago over the last 14 years. A few look just like any other office churning out widgets and paperwork. But most are clearly designed to inspire their employees, impress their investors, and demonstrate that architecture is a both a creative art and a science.
Legat Architects recently opened a new studio in north suburban Gurnee. It’s about 15 minutes west of Waukegan, where Legat was founded in the late 1960’s, but far different from its urban loft-style digs in Chicago’s West Loop where we profiled the firm one year ago.
Legat has several offices acoss the Midwest in order to work closely with its largely institutional customer base. And the new outpost is none too shabby. The firm is rightly proud of how it came out, and has put together a blog article about it. So, for more words on the Gurnee studio click or tap here. For more pictures of the studio, scroll down.
