Prevot Design Services Studio – Geo T. Bishop Historic Downtown Building
4,515 Square Feet
Located within the newly renovated Geo T. Bishop Building, is the new home for Prevot Design Services. The design aesthetic mixes modern elements, highlights regional materials like reclaimed wood, and exposes the structural elements of the historic building. Historic elements of the building were repurposed during the renovation and contribute to the distinctive nature of the space. A prominent wood window uses the proportions of the deteriorated wood accordion door it replaces and allows natural light in while maintaining the historic nature of the exterior. The old concrete car ramp to the roof has been converted into individual offices using platforms that stair step up the ramp. The reclaimed wood stair with stainless steel cable railing connects the offices to the lower level and is open onto the staff area below. The overall design creates a dynamic work environment for the staff, highlights gallery space for project display, and provides specialty spaces for client meetings and inner office brainstorming sessions.
