Wallace Design Collective is an innovative structural and civil consulting firm with an international reach. The opportunity to redesign their Kansas City office experience was paramount in their decision to relocate to the second floor of the historic Vitagraph building in the heart of Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District. With views to the district and the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, the new location affords additional amenities and expansion for the growing agency. Odimo provided architectural and interior design, including concept reviews with the building ownership to assure the forward-thinking approach was appropriate within the historic building. Furniture specification and coordination as well as managing the integration of existing furniture within the new design was important for consistency with the Wallace Design Collective national office standard. Additional coordination with mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, technology, and telecommunications looked for reuse of the existing office as much as feasible, and strategic upgrades where appropriate. The resulting space reflects the forward-thinking culture of Wallace and will be a statement for their design clients for years to come.
