AIA Chicago recognized Sprinkles Cupcakes with an Interior Architecture Award at the 56th annual AIA Chicago Designight, held on October 28, 2011. Architect of Record HPA, collaborated with a l m project, the design architect, to create a retail storefront in Chicago’s Gold Coast for the Beverly Hills-based gourmet cupcake bakery. Behind a masonry exterior clad with a signature façade featuring Sprinkles’ iconic cupcake motif, the minimalist white oak interior features a striking presentation of the day’s cupcake varieties behind a full height sheet of glass.

“This is a place that makes me happy to be an architect,” one juror said. “It’s something that works inside and out.” Another juror complimented that “the interior and exterior are of a piece; they aren’t operating discretely.”
