The Challenge: It was considered important to maintain a sensitivity to the period elements in the public spaces. New details from handrails to signage to lighting were carefully designed to compliment the character of the building.
- Working with the Quincy Historic District Commission, Wessling Architects provided new site improvements. The building was updated for code compliance and installation of current building systems and technology.
- Interior spaces were renovated to accommodate a number of City of Quincy Department offices.
- The original wainscot, existing doors and transom lights were restored or replicated in the public spaces.
- The 1st floor corridor is defined by columns joined by arched soffits at each end.
- Pendant light fixtures of faux alabaster and antique brass were hung from carefully designed coffered ceilings that are mirrored by the carpet pattern below.
- Custom millwork included a curved reception desk and a large committee room desk with accompanying table and podium.
- Interior office spaces were given a more contemporary look through use of color, finishes and LED light fixtures.
