Latham & Watkins LLP, Chicago

Chicago, Illinois

In this legendary Mies van der Rohe-designed building, law firm Latham & Watkins renovated its Chicago office to reflect its world-class practice and celebrate the city of Chicago. Working with this long-time client, Gensler revitalized the interiors to create an open, airy and timelessly modern office, capitalizing on views of downtown and Lake Michigan. Echoing the building’s exterior’s grace and proportion, an elegant, two-story conference center serves as the heart of the space, situated along a “grand avenue” of circulation – a nod to nearby North Michigan Avenue. Visual and symbolic ties to the city include a dramatic, two-story graphic depicting the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair.
