The office design highlights the building’s existing concrete floors and wood columns, trusses and ceilings, while new plywood casework, metal mesh railings and glass storefronts along the enclosed private offices and meeting spaces reinforce the space’s industrial nature. Designed to express the creative nature of the tenant’s work, the space offers formal and informal collaborative spaces.

The pair redeveloped the space to house Burque Bakehouse, where head baker Ciccotello creates French influenced small-batch baked goods. The project overcame major infrastructural challenges, including a collapsed main sewer line, inadequate original electrical service and unexpected required replatting process.
