Studio Fit-out
Chicago Scenic

The renovated and expanded Chicago Bears Office and Training Facility accommodates the extensive broadcast and production requirements of a professional sports team while opening doors to outside users as well. A new television studio with an operable wall system spanning 36’ nearly doubles the studio’s footprint, providing an audience area for special events or interview programs. As the public identity of the Bears organization, the event space is the hub of the project, and a revenue space for rental opportunities. Acoustic separation preserves connectivity between all of the spaces, giving the client flexibility to respond to day-to-day needs and long term trends.
