the future

In 2019 MSA is embarking on creating a place where we can explore, grow, engage, collaborate, and inspire.  Our studio is moving to a new building, of our design, in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago.  

The building’s program represents the diverse interests and aspirations of the firm.  An experimental commercial and event space at street level will blend with the open design studio on the mezzanine level.  Above the studio will be a rental apartment and a penthouse unit on the fourth floor. The daring transparency of the penthouse- Mike’s new residence- will contrast with the solid monumental concrete facade at the street.

Our new headquarters is an opportunity for MSA to put into action our design philosophies.  We hope to invite our community of clients, builders, makers and designers to explore with us how to live, work, and play. 

Follow the project throughout 2019!
