Warehouse Conversion


A dilapidated 100 year old warehouse building in downtown Kent was purchased by three physician’s groups. Peninsula Architects was hired to do interior space design and consult on the exterior renovation.  Complex programming issues from three very different client groups makes this project unique in the firm’s portfolio. Some of the challenges involved shared therapy and radiation facilities coupled with the technical aspects of systems integration into a historic structure. By exposing the interior structure and utilizing brick on portions of the interior, the historic roots of the building are complimented by a highly technical, modern use.
