Penny Pritzker's new headquarters for the Pritzker Realty Group and PSP Capital Partners sought to create a transformative environment for her new business ventures. The design team developed a solution that had a strong focus on staff collaboration, state of the art technology to support their business functions, and an emphasis on hospitality. The client also requested that the environment create a subtle and sophisticated backdrop for the display of her extensive art collection.

The organization of the private offices focuses on creating unobstructed visual access between private offices and workstation positions and an emphasis on sharing views of the city and river with every occupant. Large glass sliding doors and clear glass office fronts reveal striking panoramic views of the city and bring natural light into the interior open office areas. The strategic placement of executive office suites, meeting spaces and support functions enhance collaborative functions and create architectural vistas that frame significant pieces of art. A custom designed light cove was developed to provide supplemental corridor lighting and a discreet yet flexible lighting system to highlight works of art. The public spaces focus on a sense of graciousness and provide discreet hospitality services and state of the art technology.

Refined neutral finishes, minimalist architectural detailing and sophisticated furnishings create a quiet and elegant space that reinforces the company's image and stature.
