Northbrook Riverpark

Situated on nearly 7-1/2 acres at the edge of a creek, this office park includes almost 2 acres of unbuildable flood plain.  Transforming the flood plain into a natural prairie formed a backdrop to the office park and inspired a Prairie Style feel for the buildings.  The goal of providing condominium suites as small as 1,500 square feet for small medical practices and entrepreneurial businesses, and up to 9,000 square feet for professional practices led to building sizes of 6,000, 7,500 and 9,000 square feet.  The building depth of 50 feet maximizes perimeter window lines, and the operable windows allow natural ventilation, scents of prairie flowers and a connection to the to the surrounding natural setting.

Barrington Square Façade Renovation

Built in the 1970’s as a hybrid strip center and outdoor mall, Barrington Square’s design had not weathered the years well.  Beginning in 1997, Interwork Architects designed modifications that opened up dark corners, smoothed circulation patterns, added retail space, removed outdated components and provided better compatibility with its surroundings.

In the most recent phase, transformation to the new “Barrington Square Towncenter”, the design team worked with the owners and local officials to create new auto circulation patterns, re-work outlots and enhance landscaping and drainage. A major façade renovation program incorporating traditional design elements into a vibrant retail streetscape positions Barrington Square to compete with newer retail developments.

Maya Romanoff

Growing from an artist’s studio into an award winning manufacturer of hand crafted wall coverings, Maya Romanoff needed to expand its operations  – Interwork helped convert a vacant, forty year old warehouse into a modern office that expressed their studio roots while providing up to date manufacturing space  – still reminiscent of the 19th century William Morris wallpaper  factory. Hanging “festoons” of drying wall paper inspired the office’s over sized fabric wrapped sliding panels with exposed industrial hardware.  Layers of Maya Romanoff fabrics, layers of patterned carpets and simple gallery white walls create a workspace that expresses the very distinct personality at the core of their mission and culture.  In addition to office design and building design that re-imaged the building exterior and site,  work included  pre-purchase due-diligence, solving manufacturing, warehouse and logistics processes, and major upgrades to building systems.
