This 1940's vintage single story, bow string truss industrial building was modernized and transformed into a creative office building for Steelhouse an internet marketing firm. A 4,000 s.f. mezzanine was constructed increasing the leasable area to 18,000 s.f. and to create a fun working space inside the wood trusses. The entire façade was transformed with large steel frame windows, dramatic steel canopy and modern gray tone palette with red accents. Using the required 1% for art requirement artist Chris Puzio designed and installed a sculptural steel screen at the main entrance. The free-form interior design was custom designed to create a stimulating and collaborative working environment.
