The new Zurich North America Headquarters was designed to reflect the company’s global reach and world-class stature.

The architectural character reinforces an image of reliability and success through its bold simplicity in form, a timeless material palette, and its commitment to sustainability. Composed of three primary “bars” that are offset and stacked, the arrangement creates unique spaces for collaboration and open views of the surrounding landscape. The top “bar” of the complex soars eleven stories and cantilevers toward downtown Chicago, providing visual identity along the interstate while projecting the strength and future focus of the company.

The new campus aligns with Zurich’s commitment to building sustainable communities with a focus on energy and operational efficiencies, wellness and includes input from employees to create the best workspace for the future.
