Anti-Cruelty Society

Anti-Cruelty Society

Chicago, Illinois

The Anti-Cruelty Society Project targeted several imperatives simultaneously while maintaining an overall aesthetic rhythm evocative of Daniel Burnham’s early Chicago School architecture. The design team stacked the parking structure above the usable tenant spaces to allow the building to maintain a proper scale with the neighboring structures without compromising its inherent character or usable function. Spandrel glass and ventilated louvers mimic the locations of windows to soften the façade and help it feel more commercial.
