Four Designs

Four separate Chicago-based design teams contributed reuse alternatives for Prentice:

Loebl Schlossman & Hackl

Founded in 1925, Loebl Schlossman & Hackl is a Chicago-based Architecture, Planning and Interior Design firm. Three generations of leadership and a successful history have sustained our rich regional and global practice. Today, we continue to build on our experience across a variety of practice areas. This diversity and knowledge of project types creates fresh approaches that often transfer from one project type to another, giving our clients unique and exciting new design concepts.

Loebl Schlossman & Hackl is dedicated to the practice of design in the broadest sense by enhancing the quality of life through the creation of buildings that raise people’s expectations. We listen to our clients, upholding the concept of responsible, personal service. We employ common sense and an awareness of economic reality to create the best buildings and environments possible . . . buildings that are enjoyable to look at and to experience.

The Loebl Schlossman & Hackl team was led by David Urschel, Principal and Director of the Healthcare Practice.

Kujawa Architecture LLC

Kujawa Architecture is a Chicago-based design firm focusing on the intersection of Art, Architecture, Design and Landscape. We believe that good design is not precluded by real-world constraints. In fact, we welcome them, often finding inspiration in reconciling seemingly competing demands placed on a project. We view these intersections as opportunities. Considering all aspects of the work including the physical, cultural and economic context along with our client’s vision, budget and schedule we seek to reach a balance of the pragmatic and the poetic.

Prentice team members from Kujawa Architecture are Casimir Kujawa, Principal; Mason Pritchett, Architect; Patrick Johnson, Architect; and Andrew Corrigan, Designer.

Cyril Marsollier & Wallo Villacorta

Cyril Marsollier & Wallo Villacorta were awarded first prize for their Prentice reuse design for “Future Prentice,” the 2012 Chicago Prize Competition sponsored by the Chicago Architectural Club.

Originally from Paris, France, and Lima, Peru, respectively, Cyril & Wallo are currently based in Chicago. Their architectural practice seeks to attain an understanding of the city through its by-products and artifacts.

After receiving his BS Arch from the University of Illinois, Wallo worked in Zurich, Switzerland, at architectural firm E2A (Eckert Eckert Architekten). Currently Wallo works at the branding and design studio Someoddpilot and is the director and curator of Public Works Gallery.

Prior to arriving in Chicago, Cyril worked at Work Architec¬ture Company in New York City and at L’AUC in Paris. He holds a Masters of Architecture with distinction from the National Superior School of Architecture in Versailles.
