The Basecamp project is a 10,000sf commercial build-out for a software company in Chicago, Illinois.

Basecamp is a web-based software company with over 5 million users that Time magazine has described as “one of the net’s rising stars.” The company’s philosophy of relying on usefulness over gadgetry has made Mies van der Rohe’s credo of “less is more” a business objective as much as a design approach to their software. Basecamp sought out Brininstool + Lynch to create a unique work environment that not only reflects their business philosophy, but that allows their space to work as effectively for their needs as their software applications work for their customers.
