We are a group of architects and engineers working collaboratively to make a positive impact on the built environment.  From our large light filled studio, we focus our energy on diverse projects, working together to create spaces that will inspire and hold meaning for our clients and the collective community.  Regardless of project type or scale, we see every design as an opportunity to fulfill client goals and fuel our passion for architecture.

 

Zarlengo's Italian Ice and Gelato has been a fixture of the Chicago Height community for decades. The new manufacturing facility adjacent to the retail store is designed to have a pedestrian and an inviting presence.  It incorporates landscape walls, outdoor seating, and green areas to define an outdoor room for the patrons of the retail facility.  The manufacturing portion of the facility is used as a backdrop to the retail and offices. 

 

PROGRAM

The 8000 sq. ft. facility includes 2000 sq. ft. of office and 6000 sq. ft. of manufacturing.  The renovated existing retail facility is 1000 sq. ft. The site includes 36 parking spaces and a loading dock.
