Commercial: New Office Building
Hampton Roads Capitol
2018 Completed Project: Mequon, WI
After sustaining extensive fire damage to the entire building in the fall of 2017, a new building was needed to replace Hampton Road Capitol’s executive headquarters. The new building includes multiple executive offices, conference rooms, and a space for hosting small corporate events with an adjacent patio and green space. To further highlight this high-end executive building, a strong attention-to-detail was placed on an exterior space that was just as unique as the interior. With an elegant design and emphasis on true craftsmanship, materials for the building were both exotic and practical in application. Slate tile roofing was sourced from Vermont, while exterior bluestone pavers were quarried in Pennsylvania. Alaskan white cedar trim and Eastern white oak floors and paneling grace the interior. Philippine mahogany and copper was utilized on the exterior cladding and trim of the building as well as the garden pergola. Reclaimed century-old cream city brick from a deconstructed farmhouse is the capstone of the exterior design. Over 100 local craftsman were involved in the rebuild of this stately office building for the Mellowes family.
