The Oak Park-River Forest Infant Welfare Society (IWS) recently announced it has selected LEGAT Architects as the design partner for the remodel of its new building at 28 Madison St. in Oak Park.
“We conducted an extensive review of all prospective candidates, but given the qualifications and experience Legat Architects brought, we are very pleased to work with them to deliver a truly exemplary primary care facility for our children,” explained Peggy LaFleur, Infant Welfare Society’s executive director, in the July edition of IWS Insights, the organization’s email newsletter.
IWS anticipates settling into its new 2-story, 14,250-square-foot building by March 2021 — before the lease on its current space at 320 Lake St. is up. The remodeled facility will include “new educational programs, such as life skills, health education, fitness [and] healthy lifestyles,” among others.
The renderings “are representative and are not meant to depict the final work,” Infant Welfare officials explained.
