TD Ameritrade

Northbrook, Illinois

TD Ameritrade’s new 5,500 SF free-standing office building was designed to fit seamlessly within the neighboring office building context in suburban Northbrook. Design features were thoughtfully chosen in regards to how the new 4-story building would “stand up” to the larger 8-story surrounding glass and concrete buidings. The OKW authored design features boast a dynamic visual dialogue including glass concave geometry, an angled prow and a cantilevered canopy. Mimicking the existing building’s stepped massing, the new structure consists of a lower single-story office portion at the rear which steps up to a taller glass lobby volume facing the street.
