Conference Center + Tenant Lounge


191 North Wacker
6,600 sf Building Amenity Space

191 North Wacker is a class A office building in downtown Chicago. For their tenant amenities, Eastlake conceived two distinct yet interconnected spaces: a large multi-functional conference space and an intimate wi-fi lounge. An expansive glass wall provides visual connection with acoustical privacy between the conference space and the lounge, reinforcing the interrelation of the two programs. The meeting room can be quickly reconfigured with an operable partition to accommodate groups ranging from 20 to 110. The lounge consists of a series of spaces offering varying degrees of privacy and engagement: refreshment bar, game area, and fabric-wrapped “quiet booths.” Occupants of the building can use the lounge as a quiet work space during the day, a meet-up space during lunch, or an after-hours event spot at night.
