CHICAGO ZOOLOGICAL SOCIETY - BROOKFIELD ZOO, IL

Working as an ongoing phasing project to the master plan, WGA completely renovated all of the zoo's restroom facilities throughout the entire site.  Drawing from inspirations within the adjacent exhibit spaces, we wanted to bring a new experience into spaces which are most often overlooked.  Vibrant colors, and unique graphics help to highlight these spaces.

DONOHUE BUILDING - 727 S DEARBORN - CHICAGO, IL

This project was a WGA/Frankel collaboration, modernizing the existing lobby of the historic Donohue Building in Printer's Row.  Recycled wood was used from a century old water tower tank removed from the roof in order to create the entry phone box.  Illuminated light boxes with letter glazing were utilized to screen the mailboxes, while also flanking and lighting the path to the elevator.  A row of historic images are inset within the South wall, while 2 printing relics are accented atop reclaimed wood stands within the window bays.
