Hyde Park Bank Real Estate Lending Center

Numbers Taking Shape

Transform dollars into architecture. That’s exactly what Hyde Park Bank’s real estate loan professionals help property developers do every day. We decided to manifest that concept—transforming numbers into geometry, volume, and structure—visually in wall treatments and signage for the bank’s new commercial real estate lending center.

Grillo Group designed signage, an exterior mural, and three interior wallpaper patterns to complement this gem of a building, communicating the substance and promise of the financial business transacted inside. As architect Paul Florian puts it, “The Grillo Group’s work increased the impact and the function of the building without compromising the architecture. Their work is effective, lively, and elegant; it is intelligently conceived. They are expert at collaborating and expanding on marketing and identity concepts as part of a team.”


This project was honored by the prestigious American Institute of Architects AIA Chicago and AIA Illinois with awards for interior design and was featured in Interior Design Magazine.
