Not that Whitehouse. This Whitehouse is a film editing company that started life in London – in a little white house. 20 years on they now have offices all over the world, including the Chicago office, featured here, which was designed by Los Angeles architect Bruce Bolander.

Whitehouse partners and editors David Brixton, Rick Lawley and Matthew Wood were deeply involved in the creative decision-making of the project. ”Often what’s missing on a commercial project is the client point-of-view. Rick Lawley took the time to fly out to Chicago with me several times,” says Bolander. “We’d spend the car ride out discussing the project, and then I’d have the time on the flight to draw what we had talked about, Four undisturbed hours without the phone or computer to work side-by-side with the client is a rare creative luxury in this day and age.”
