School of the Art Institute of Chicago

Chicago, Illinois

Originally a historic landmark hotel, Pepper converted this building into usable space for SAIC. The renovations created new dormitories, graduate student offices and film-making and drawing studios. Administrative facilities and art education spaces were also included in the new building. This project added to a long-standing relationship with SAIC, including many other building conversion/renovation projects.
