Shive Hattery was tasked to take a regular old grimy old alley on West Monroe between Franklin and Wells downtown Chicago and turn it into a community gathering place. I'm talking not just a place for people to rest and smoke, but a place where people can come outside and be inspired, excited, comfortable, re-cafinated, rejuvenated, and any other buzz word that might drive my point home. You get the picture, (Actually, you just looked at it). The team at Shive Hattery hit another grand slam.
Hamilton Elementary - Moline, IL
Hamilton Elementary is Moline, Illinois' first new school in fifty years. It was designed by Legat Architects to prioritize academic achievement.

Hillshire Brands - Chicago, IL
This office is huge at 230,000 square feet, so choosing 5 images to show you was quite difficult. The office won the award for best corporate office over 10,000 square feet in 2013 from the The American Society of Interior Designers. It was a lithography and printing plant before Hillshrire Brands and Perkins + Will got their hands on it. The project took 11 1/2 months to design and construct.
