Live Work Studio – Oak Park

For over twenty years, the Chicago School of Mold Making (CSMM) in Oak Park has been designing and fabricating a variety of molds for the culinary industry.

As the company expands its range of products and services, CSMM commissioned Canopy to develop a free standing annex, the 46 Lake Studios. This new four-level structure will provide additional gathering, studio, storage, and urban farming spaces in support of the expanding needs of CSMM. Through high-performance, low-maintenance materials and systems such as treated wood, pre-cast concrete, and radiant heating, the 46 Lake Studios will effectively respond to the context of Oak Park while fulfilling the visions of CSMM and its industry affiliates.
