Celebrating a company’s heritage while expressing its progressive outlook toward the future.

The John Buck Company, a premier real estate company that evolved from the developer that transformed Chicago’s Wacker Drive and Michigan Avenue to become a national development, investment, and asset management firm, needed a new workplace that celebrates their company’s growth yet expresses their progressive outlook toward the future.

The reception and conference experience are conceived as gallery space, creating a dialogue between art, artifact, and architecture. Our client’s curated art pieces are framed within refined yet dynamic architectural expression and detail inspired by The John Buck Company’s iconic buildings and progression toward the future.

While the conference rooms’ intended use is for confidential client meetings, the art gallery and work lounge café are physically connected to invite transparency and interaction for staff and guests. A digital 180-degree pivot panel is a fulcrum between the conference and work lounge.
