Earles Architects and Associates (EAA) has completed two office design projects for law firms in Chicago. Pavich Law Group moved to the historic Inland Steel Building and Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP moved to NBC Tower.
The Pavich Law Group moved into a 6,200-square-foot office space at 30 W. Monroe St., Chicago. EAA customized the office design to conform to the preservation requirements of the building. The 19-story glass and steel building, built in 1958, is designated a City of Chicago Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The law firm was moving to one of the three floors that has more stringent preservation requirements. Among the specialized designs EAA created was a customized modular furniture wall system to mimic the original Hauserman design.
The law firm, which focuses on personal injury representation, moved from 20 S. Clark St., Chicago. Ten employees will be working at the site. The contractor on the project was Reed Construction Corporation.
EAA also completed final architectural design and space planning for Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP’s new office at NBC Tower in Chicago.
The national consumer-rights class action law firm is leasing 6,000 square feet on the 24th floor of the art deco building at 455 N Cityfront Plaza Dr. EAA designed the space with a nod to the building’s art deco architecture, as well as included plenty of open areas and glass office fronts to take advantage of sweeping views of Lake Michigan, Navy Pier, and the Chicago River.
EAA also assisted with furniture coordination and selection of office finishes.
