  • Eastlake Studio designed the new offices of privately held investment company Mason Avenue Investments, located in Chicago, Illinois.

    Located in the historic Wrigley Building, Mason Avenue Investments is the new headquarters for a privately held investment company. The client requested a quietly elegant office that could adapt to the future needs of an evolving business.

    Some negotiation was required to find the right balance between a contemporary interior and the historic surroundings. The resulting design strikes a modern chord with bright white terrazzo floors, while rich millwork and spare use of traditional moldings are a nod to the historic context. Strict historic preservation requirements and a desire to maximize natural light resulted in most enclosed space pulled away from the exterior window line, exposing stunning treetop views over the Chicago River.
