Pullman Artspace

When Chicago’s historic Pullman neighborhood received National Landmark status in 2015, Pullman Artspace, LLC, in partnership with the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, sponsored a phased competition for the design of an artist’s live/work space incorporating new construction connecting two original Pullman buildings located at either end of an otherwise empty block.

HPZS, as part of a joint venture with frequent collaborator Latent Design, helped lead the design team through the competition specifically focused on providing historic preservation and sustainable design consulting leadership. The project had a goal of LEED Platinum and incorporated many sustainable design features, from geothermal heating and cooling to high performance envelope, to the adaptive reuse of the existing historic structures.
