ACLU – 6th FLOOR | 10,700 sf | Chicago, IL
Baumann Studios LLC was hired to design the new office of the regional ACLU at 150 N. Michigan Ave. The challenge was to create a comfortable, bright environment that reflects the collegial and positive nature of the group but within a very tight budget. The result is a space that includes historical reference, starting with a statement in the reception area from the founder and an image of the Statue of Liberty, as well as spaces that promote interaction and collaboration. The color scheme is predominantly neutral and calming with accents of blue and the introduction of warm wood tones in select furniture pieces.
