Amazing Space

Crain’s Chicago Business 2019 Best New Event Spaces 

Designed as a fellowship hall for the nearby Old St. Patrick’s (OSP) Church congregation, Amazing Space is an award-winning venue at 625 West Adams Street. The 20,000-square-foot buildout features design cues from the original OSP church building of 1850. Among the similarities are the use of yellow brick, marble floors, warm wood, soaring ceilings, and the subtle use of Celtic motifs. The 2nd-floor mezzanine overlooks the main floor providing a beautiful view from above.

Eckenhoff Saunders achieved a delicate balance between sacred and secular by integrating large Romanesque forms with simplified religious symbolism in designing a space to accommodate a wide variety of users. The buildout includes a main hall for large (800-person) gatherings, a catering kitchen, a sacristy, conference rooms, and a large multi-purpose space.
