Interior office design and custom finishes fabrication designed in collaboration with Rapt Studio. Located within the historic First National Building in downtown Ann Arbor, MI. An exterior perimeter of private offices with glass fronts enclose a common area with custom kitchenette island and meeting table. The island functions as a display entrance as visitors enter the space adjacent to the elevator as well as the functional equipment and storage needs of a kitchen. Blackened metal steel panels, bent steel tubing and solid hickory make up the 17’ long island surround.
