Adaptive Reuse Renovation


Shafer, Kline and Warren hired IAA to design its offices within a newly acquired industrial space in North KC. The existing warehouse building was dark, dilapidated and dismal - unfit for offices.

IAA delivered a modern, bright and sophisticated workplace. Flexible open work spaces, private offices, conference rooms, storage, restrooms, and a kitchenette + break room were all designed to fit within the existing shell. Every opportunity to bring natural light into the space was utilized by taking full advantage of existing door and window openings, and enlarging them wherever feasible. Understated, hip white gypsum board walls, simple office partitions, workstations and furnishings, light maple wood and thin slate tile accent walls complement the existing steel roof joists and polished concrete floors. The end result is a functional and dynamic office embodying SKW’s position as a leader of its industry.
