American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy | Institute for Training and Technology
American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) is a professional organization dedicated to advancing patient care and digestive health by promoting excellence in endoscopy. The association’s recent growth in employees required relocating to a new building. The new 41,000-square-foot building includes corporate offices, classrooms, a teaching laboratory, conference center, and auditorium.
ASGE wanted their space to reflect their corporate brand while simultaneously being open and welcoming. SCB’s design solution incorporates a warm color palette and tactile materials that invite clients in and make employees feel comfortable in their workplace. As per the design mandate to incorporate the natural views provided by the adjacent lake and its surrounding foliage, SCB incorporated several floor-to-ceiling glass windows in the lobby and large windows throughout to offer up these views. The project was awarded a Cornerstone Award from the Downers Grove Economic Development Corporation, attesting to the overall quality and the success of the project within the greater Downers Grove community.
The building’s exterior is reflected in the interior design with the use of a two-storied wall in the lobby and full-height glazing systems throughout.
