Corus Bank

Chicago, Illinois

1999

Bright wood paneling and clean lines provide a calm welcoming work environment for a regional bank’s corporate headquarters. A full renovation of a 57,000 square foot five-story limestone building and a 56,000 square foot addition establish the client’s identity at a prominent six-corner intersection on Chicago’s North Side. The curated palette of materials and natural and indirect lighting tie the interiors of the projects two halves together into a cohesive whole, while paying respect to the historic building’s original character.
