CMG / Weber Shandwick

Low profile workspaces, glass fronted offices, and vibrant colors work together to highlight the expansive windows and views of Lake Michigan and Chicago. Contemporary pendant light fixtures are found in the employee lounge areas and most notably in the worm wood ceiling. The clear bulbs and thin wires allow the light to enhance the color variations in the worm wood without taking up physical space. 

ICG led the team, acting as the LEED Project Administrator and the project exceeded the client’s goal by obtaining LEED Silver Certification. 

By working together in the early stages of design development, the team monitored the budget and controlled changes to less than 50% of the client’s contingency to successfully achieve the client’s vision.
