Land and Sea Dept. is a Chicago-based concept and project development studio working creatively and passionately across disciplines. Its principals – Cody Hudson, Jon Martin, Robert McAdams and Peter Toalson – have collective decades of involvement in the fields of art, construction, design, event production, identity, marketing, music, and woodworking. Their experience allows them to apply their unique creative perspectives across a variety of applications and constantly develop new concepts.
Land and Sea Dept. has completed a broad range of projects (art exhibitions, film screenings, live concerts, bars, restaurants, structural designs, and more), including some of Logan Square’s best-loved establishments: Michelin-starred Longman & Eagle, Parson’s Chicken & Fish, Lost Lake, and Thank You. Land and Sea Dept. also operates four restaurant concepts within the restored and reimagined Chicago Athletic Association: Cherry Circle Room, Game Room, Drawing Room, and Milk Room.
