This renovation is the fourth collaboration between MSA and KnowledgeWorks. The overall goal was to create an innovative and comfortable work environment encouraging creative thought and a positive image. All major systems were updated and the space was completely gutted to reflect a modern loft environment. The loft-like design was achieved through high ceilings, acoustical clouds of light, exposed ductwork and the use of natural materials. Materials such as maple, clear-coated MDF, slate, and clear anodized aluminum were used to solidify the simple, yet sophisticated environment. The neutral palette and natural materials selected showcase the Foundation’s permanent collection of student artwork.
