TowerPinkster worked with the Kalamazoo Neighborhood Housing Services to renovate their 3,500 SF space. Their team had outgrown their current office configuration and so increasing usable workspace was key. Located on Axtel Creek, maximizing proximity to windows to take advantage of the view and increasing daylight for all of the offices was integral to the design of the space. To achieve this, the break area was relocated to the center of the building, providing a central gathering space, and giving the offices access to the windows. The guest entry experience was modified to provide a larger and more welcoming space. A curved reception desk with a feature wall softens the space and encourages smoother circulation. The glass between the reception and hallway visually expands the space while still keeping the office area secure. The project achieved increased office space while providing a welcoming, comfortable space for their clients as they venture into the world of home ownership.
