Description

Ross Barney Architects moved into this century-old warehouse formerly owned by world renowned Chicago architect Harry Weese in 2002. It features a 2-story, sky-lit atrium and an angled staircase connecting the fourth and fifth floors. Ross Barney revised the space to be more conducive for collaboration by taking down partitions, including the ones that enclosed Weese's private office, and installing reconfigurable workstations. Visitors who enter the reception area are greeted with a series of fabric panels and 3D models of the many projects the studio has designed.

Behind the Scenes

Take a walk through Harry Weese's former offices, now the studio where Ross Barney Architects designed the Chicago Riverwalk, the new McDonald’s at Clark and Ontario, and other notable projects.
