Prairie Management Group

Northbrook, Illinois, USA

A commercial design entrepreneur’s passion for clean, bold modern design inspired the composition of this dramatic, light-filled investment office.

Inserted into a single-story, speculative office suite, the 7,500-square-foot facility is organized around three compositional elements: the colonnade, created by the building’s exposed structural steel columns and central ridge beam; full-height glass screen walls; and a custom maple “pavilion.”

The simple, classic interior composition of thin glass frames and bold, clear millwork forms rendered in a timeless color palette—all awash in natural light—creates a platform in which the appreciation of fine art, design and nature enables a pioneering entrepreneur to continue his lifelong passion for creating business value through design.
