Brininstool + Lynch Moves to Its Own Design

Brininstool + Lynch has moved its offices to 1144 West Washington Boulevard in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood.

Brininstool + Lynch designed this 7,500-square foot, three-story building twelve years ago for a group of theoretical physicists. B+L took the front off the humble 1920s brick-and-concrete building, replaced it with a beautifully detailed steel-and-glass façade and completely renovated the interior. When it was finished, this project received a Distinguished Building Honor Award and an Interior Architecture Honor Award from AIA Chicago in 2001 and was featured in Interior Design magazine.

The building became available in late 2012, just as B+L was looking for new office space. The firm built out its studios on the top two floors, allowing it to expand to an architectural staff of thirty-three. Later this year, B+L will complete work on the first floor to house its “design lab,” with workshop facilities and equipment for modeling and materials investigation, as well as an “experience” space to be used for project charettes, multi-media presentations and research projects.
