When PFW opened its doors in 1964, Kettler Hall was the first and only building on the campus. The 52-year-old building required a much-needed renovation to its first-floor lobby and West wing. Admissions, financial offices and student advising are presently housed in the hall.

Current layouts lacked cohesiveness and were underutilized. Focus on ‘student success’ was PFW’s core goal. 15,000 square feet of space was reconfigured to allow greater student access and enhance circulation as well as establish a centralized student waiting area. The new central hub provides a hang-out space where students can collaborate and recharge. Designed as a technology rich space, a wide variety of seating configurations supports the needs of contemporary student life.

Fresh finishes and architectural elements bring energy and interest to the project while referencing PFW’s brand and culture.

More than a decade had passed since our studio was considered for a remodel of the Johnson Board Room in Butler University’s Robertson Hall. At the time a hand blocked wallpaper from the 1800s depicting Butler’s architectural heritage was to be replicated. The project was never realized; however, in 2011 the idea was resurrected.

Seven of the university’s most iconic buildings were selected for the considerable mural executed by local artists, Blice Edwards. A palette of more than 40 colors were used to craft the immense art work which extends to the 22-foot ceiling.

Also incorporated into the project scope were a host of other improvements aside from the mural. Appropriately detailed millwork framing a prominent entry, buffets with black granite tops, the camouflage of return air-grilles and sound absorption blankets were just a few of the enhancements.

Stately but simple floor to ceiling velvet curtains were installed to enrich the room and provide an elongated design element. Fresh traditional carpet tiles and new large-scale pendants replaced out of date floor finishes and lighting respectively. Upgrading technology was important during the remodel, adding two media spaces to the Johnson Board Room to house upgraded systems.

This lake house had originally been two separate structures that are now joined, an original cottage and an adjacent out building once connected by a porch. The new remodel has married the two buildings with the addition of a central living room. The cottage volume contains the kitchen, dining spaces and entry on the first level. On the second-floor lives bedrooms with porch access, individual bathrooms and a casual family room.  

The former out building houses the master bedroom with an ensuite bath featuring a bathing tub with direct views to Lake Michigan. A soaring fireplace flanked by floor to ceiling window walls is the anchoring feature of the new living room. A covered porch directly from the living room offers a second fireplace and provides a protected respite.  

All interior finishes, furnishings and fabrics echo a peaceful ‘Zen’ making the project a tranquil haven to be enjoyed all year.

This grand house was brought to fruition by a decade of planning, collecting, designing and building. The design was influenced by the Duke and Duchess of Windsor’s neoclassical estate in Paris. Much of the home’s design focus was based on the proper display of the owner’s vast antique collection. Careful collaboration was considered when finding a home to accommodate each piece. When the project completed every displayed painting, treasured antique and heirloom seamlessly found its place within the space it inspired. 

Design highlights include clean neutral main level walls adorned with white moldings which are punctuated with soft hues of lavender, teal, gold and champagne. Custom pattern rugs, floor to ceiling draperies and hand painted wallpapers reinforce the specific style of the house. Distinct seating arrangements throughout the residence allow areas for reading, relaxing and conversation. Accessories and furnishings were thoughtfully curated to blend harmoniously and provide a timeless aesthetic to the design.

The basis for any successful retail development is to create a design that establishes an uncommon destination. That is exactly what was designed for Jade Pig Venture’s new retail building featuring a Chipotle restaurant as the anchor tenant. Chipotle maintained its national identity and branding while allowing adjacent future tenants of the property to have a similar presence. 

The thoughtfully planned use of scale, proportions and materials provide a building unique to ownership, tenants and patrons.
