Collaborating with repeat client Boka Restaurant Group, LG Construction completed Duck Duck Goat for acclaimed chef Stephanie Izard. Once again, LG coordinated the complex interior design with AvroKo working throughout the project to manage the finish schedules within the client’s budget.

The finished project transports you to Chinatown, giving diners a new atmosphere and experience in several dining rooms, and a main bar designed as an outdoor pavilion. The expansive back of house space provides Chef Izard with five different kitchens including a duck/game kitchen, noodles kitchen, butcher room, and take-out kitchen.

This one-store retail building was split up to create three-retail spaces. While building out Diptyque’s unique store, designed by London’s Jenner Studios, we encompassed their personal identity with the architectural heritage of the Parisian region.

Girl & the Goat, named one of the Top 5 Restaurant Openings in America in 2012, is located on Chicago’s renowned strip of restaurants on West Randolph Street.
This project included a complicated basement excavation and challenging structural work, all completed on a tight construction schedule. The building was transformed from an abandoned warehouse into a spectacular restaurant space in an impressive five and a half months.
LG coordinated with 555 Design and meticulously managed a budget with the client, pursuing alternative finishes and fixtures throughout the project to ensure the completed project was everything the client wanted.

This 6 bedroom/5.5 bathroom home was featured in the CS Interiors cover story in Spring of 2010. It was carefully crafted with a traditional facade to match it’s neighbors and a modern interior to match it’s owner’s young and professional style. LG partnered with Casagrande Architects and PROjECT Interiors to give the client a streamlined look with plenty of utility. Various textures and finishes are used to soften and highlight the modern architecture and built-in amenities.
Among several specialized construction elements (a sauna, gym, and more), the 7-car garage stands out. Contracted separately after the main house was completed, the garage was a true testament to a very happy client experience. Our design-build team worked hand-in-hand with the clients to achieve this spacious garage on a typical Chicago lot. The garage, complete with lifts, is now home to a sports car collection with room to spare.

LG Construction was hired by Four Corners Tavern Group to completely demolish what was originally American Junkie, and transform the space into an upscale restaurant, bar, and nightclub. While preserving the back of house spaces, LG navigated the complications of modifying the existing second floor structure to add a central staircase and reworking all existing building components to fit the new design.
Working again with interior designer Studio K Creative, the communication amongst the project team was invaluable as decisions were made on the fly and existing building surprises were overcome. This successful team approach lead the project to completion without adding time to an aggressive schedule and allowed the client to meet private party commitments made prior to construction starting. The end result evokes an upscale Las Vegas nightclub experience in the heart of River North.

The Smylie Brothers Restaurant & Brewery was LG’s first brewery project and a fantastic addition to our restaurant building portfolio. Hired by BOKA Restaurant Group and working with JWrap Architecture, this 10,500 square foot renovation was an intoxicating project! Elements of the restaurant’s interior and exterior facade were built with reclaimed wood, and the main dining room boasts an impressive exposed bow truss roof, giving the space an industrial aesthetic with a welcoming feel all while using Green building products.

A classic American dining club with a spirit of longevity, steadiness and timelessness, says proprietor and lifelong Chicagoan, Keene Addington (founder and former CEO of Flat Top Grill).
Addington envisioned the club as an iconic Chicago mainstay, a sentiment reflected in the original artwork and artifacts (including mahogany from the old Pump Room). A jazz trio
(including a 1918 Steinway piano) croons nightly playing tunes from a bygone era.
