Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Adaptive Fitness Center

Chicago, Illinois

This new facility consolidates two previously separate programs in one new home, combining the physical and programmatic elements of both in an 8,000-square-foot space. The integration prompted the Gensler team to consider new crossovers and efficiencies. A shared lobby helped, resulting in centralized support staff and increased collaboration. The unification and design have resulted in new program offerings and a more collaborative environment for employees and participants.
