Architecture Overview:

Combining careful study of historic photographs with attention to 21st century needs resulted in a rejuvenated building that blends contemporary usability with the grace and character of the 100-year-old design. RDG's design adds new mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems, along with Life Safety and Americans with Disabilities Act improvements. Architectural details throughout the building beautifully echo the original design, including the new wood windows, reconstructed north entrance tower, masonry and stone work, and major interior renovation.
