McDonalds HQ

McDonald’s Chicago HQ features a fast food museum and a giant Jacob Hashimoto installation.

When McDonald’s decided to relocate to a 9-story building in Chicago’s west loop, the company envisioned a new headquarters that would speak to an increasingly urban and health-conscious culture.

The new head office for mcdonald’s has been conceived as part corporate HQ, and part cultural center, school, and history museum. Classic work areas and meeting rooms Interact with work areas that have the look and feel of hospitality venues. According to the design team, every architectural gesture functions on its own and in partnership with the spaces around it.

Each of the headquarters’ nine stories has been conceived as a ‘chapter’ that unfolds floor by floor. a multidirectional staircase in the building’s central atrium provides a striking focal point. Here, a giant art work by Jacob Hashimoto cascades downwards, comprising hundreds of his signature miniature ‘kites’.

Glowing back-lit lacquer panels and custom resin-cast pieces celebrate the brand’s packaging and happy meal toys have been proudly put on display.
