Wicker Park Theater

Location: Wicker Park, Chicago
Client: Withheld
Scope: Architecture (Renovation) + Masterplan 
Progress/Year: 2019–Ongoing

This off-Loop performance space in Wicker Park has grown rapidly in the past twenty years. From when the theater’s founder rented one room in the second floor of a Wicker Park building, this theater over time has evolved into seven live performance spaces and three bars. Today, it hosts emerging “rising theater troupes” as well as comedy, stand-up, live music, and other events. Plans for the future include a renewed historic facade and the introduction of new restaurant and bar spaces.
