Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation Office on Architect Magazine
RCWJF outgrew its existing second floor office space shortly after McIntosh Poris Associates’ building renovation. We worked with the foundation and building owners, Midtown Detroit, Inc., to convert three of the third-floor apartments into additional office space. Programming here included three private offices, two meeting rooms, open office space, restrooms, and storage space.
Renovating a 100-year-old building can be challenging. Layers of history are uncovered during construction, requiring architects to quickly devise creative solutions to any unforeseen circumstances.
