Naperville, Illinois

The Matrix Club is an exciting new arts, performance, and private event venue in Naperville. Housed in a former Sam’s Club, our challenge was to re-imagine the space to create an elevated guest experience and a true destination facility. We introduced exterior and interior changes to the building, including a new curtain wall and a grand central common space with a new skylight, reflecting pool, and performance stage to draw visitors into a diverse array of arts and events program spaces.
