A symbol of growth, this project represents the creative renovation, expansion and reuse of an existing office building into a facility designed to house the management of one of the country’s largest food service franchise operations.
The building, a two story commercial office, was purchased by Covelli Enterprises to house their growing operations. Through ongoing renovations, the structure was altered to include the addition of a third floor as well as a dedicated entrance for Covelli Enterprise operations. Realizing a need for further expansion, Phillips|Sekanick Architects developed a comprehensive plan that added new space while at the same time, reconfiguring the existing layout. Though the introduction of a new entry and completely refaced exterior, the building has been rebranded to reflect the expanding operations of the user.
The project successfully demonstrates the adaptability of existing structures that are purposefully redesigned to serve a new use. The open and inviting workplace created through the design, reflects the efforts of the design team in addressing owner needs.
