1913 Schoolhouse Office Renovation
In 2019, Renz Construction completed a total remodel on a school house originally built in 1913. We transformed the old school house into a mid-century modern set of offices with sectioned spaces for three businesses and organizations in the community.
To create the new space, we removed the old plaster walls to expose the original exterior brick; removed and replaced the old HVAC with a new, efficient system; framed new walls; reworked the floors; added new trim, moldings, and finishes; and installed several custom features throughout the building.
In order to achieve a mid-century feel for the new space, we worked closely with our clients to find the perfect finishing touches. We listened very closely to their design goals and worked to make sure every detail matched their vision. The final finishes included a retro electric fireplace, wall art, lighting fixtures, window treatments, and thoughtfully-selected furniture really pull the whole space together. As a nod to its original purpose as a school house, we refurbished and kept several aesthetic pieces like a series of in-set lockers, memorabilia, and trophy cases.
The new space now includes:
- A set of custom offices
- A custom, in-wall, exotic fish tank
- A golf simulator
- Custom personal offices
- Custom shared offices
- Nostalgic bathrooms
- Beautiful seating areas
- Custom workstations
- Custom shelving to match work stations
- Custom plant shelf
