Dynamic Loft Offices at The Budd Dairy

Interior Architecture- Small Scale (<5,000 sf)

Project Narrative

Located in the Budd Dairy Building, the Dynamic Loft Offices aim to create a modern working environment within the historic character and industrial nature of the original 1916 milk bottling facility. The space is meant to foster connection and synergy among employees and allow for flexibility in working styles and process.

You enter directly into a shared communal space where employees and guests can gather and collaborate, separated from the individual employee desk area only by a low height wall. It was important to the design to avoid the feeling of carved-up space and maintain a connection between all areas. This was achieved through the use of storefront systems and clerestory windows that allowed you to experience the full run of the building's original bow trusses without interruption.

One of the project's primary goals was to honor and showcase the original architecture of the building. Exposed brick walls and concrete floors were preserved and all of the new finish materials and furniture embraced the rough and worn aesthetic so it could pair well with the original industrial spirit.
