Ang Audiotree ay isang kumpanya ng media na nakabase sa Chicago at platform ng pagtuklas ng artist na nakatuon sa pag-promote at pag-angat ng mga paparating na banda. Sila ang nagmamay-ari at nagpapatakbo ng ilang iconic na lugar ng musika sa Chicago, kabilang ang Schubas Tavern.
Helios Construction Services teamed up with Gensler Chicago and Audiotree to build a new, two-story restaurant and event venue addition to the iconic Schuba’s Tavern in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. Tied House replaced the former Harmony Grill location and underutilized parking lot to offer a dining and entertainment destination in the Southport Corridor. Inspired by Schuba’s history as a Schlitz tied house, the project design cherishes the past while embracing the future by fusing traditional tavern materials and brick patterning with clean, modern elements. Helios utilized 3D laser scanning and building information modeling (BIM) tools to coordinate construction, ensuring the project met the complete design intent. A full basement coupled with a space-constrained site required extensive coordination amongst the project team, the City of Chicago, and area residents.
Ang proyektong ito ay ginawaran ng Ang AIA Chicago's Interior Architecture Award Citation of Merit para sa 2019.
