116 South 4th Street

Again in collaboration with our friends at Boxlab, we proposed a mixed-use remodel of an existing office space one block south of Poyntz in Manhattan, Kansas. The building was originally a Woolworth's department store that had been sub-divided into various sub-standard office spaces in the late 1980's. Our design focussed on redeveloping the street edge as well as creating an opportunity for inner-block social connections by carving into the building to offer multiple commercial  programs including a small grocery/bodega, restaurant, and a work share space. The existing basement would be repurposed as a parking area while the roof would be expanded upon to offer ten residential units.
