After more than 30 years in Daniel Burnham’s iconic Railway Exchange Building, SOM’s Chicago studio decided to refresh their space. Encircling the building’s airy, terracotta-clad lightwell, the newly redesigned and renovated office offers greater variety, connectivity, flexibility, daylighting and comfort, and embodies the workshop-style atmosphere of the best design ateliers. The renovation was led by the firm's own interiors team.

Originally founded in Chicago in 1936, SOM is global collective of architects, designers, engineers, and planners.

Guided tours of the space will be available
