Update to Covenant Orthodox Presbyterian Church

We have been working for a few years with an amazing group of individuals at Covenant Orthodox Presbyterian Church whom have stuck together and remained committed to a long-term building campaign and so with our first site visit today it's gratifying to see the building progress. A portion of Covenants mission is to be a place of new beginnings with it’s roots in the past. We hope this is illustrated in our design as it resembles our intent. Working with an established building to provide increased accessibility, better restrooms, a drive-up canopy, a kitchen that supports the Church and its communal mission, a new toddler room, supportive office spaces and a defined narthex area are just some of the renovations which will rejuvenate the building.

Final Walk-thru Starbucks - Greenfield

 Greenfield, Wisconsin

We completed our final walk-thru for Starbucks today. It's another significant design transformation for our team! You would never know that this was a former rundown gas station. But if you look closely you can still see the previous white masonry building shell (now painted beige). That's about all that is distinguishable between the old and the new. #rewardingcareer  #Architecture

The Suffrage Movement

 Who doesn't love a surprise?

Today we had a visitor from the Waukesha County Historical Society. We knew our office building that we share with Orange Hat Publishing was once the home of the Waukesha Freeman but today we learned more about that important moment in history 100 years ago and the suffrage movement that occurred during that time.

If our building could talk what story could it tell?

Studying the dates we suspect Theodora Youmans and her husband spent a lot of time in our building during the suffrage movement. #waukeshahistory
