Collective Office Chicago now has a new home, after a substantial project we have moved into this 1889 building. Previously, this 2 story 5,550sf building was home to a custom masonry fabrication contractor, and sat vacant since the mid 1980's. 24 dump trucks, 7 months and a lot of amazing people brought this pre-Chicago fire building back to life for generations to come. We are fortunate to call this home and look forward to helping many current and future clients design and realize new projects.
