Adaptive Re-Use

Over the past nearly 35 years, Coffey Group Architecture, LLC, the 2003 AIA Chicago Architecture Firm of the Year, has developed a reputation for high quality, innovative work in a variety of complex and diverse areas of architecture and design. These often include adaptive re-use of historic as well as older, obsolete buildings which have outlived their original function and are reinvigorated by the conversion to new and compatible uses. This adaptive process requires deep understanding of construction methods of the past in order to facilitate feasible adaptations and reconstruction of older buildings. It is our practice to have sensitivity to historic character and materials combined with innovative planning and technological expertise to efficiently incorporate the functional requirements of new uses.
