While experiencing rapid growth in recent years, The Krueger Group looked to the adjacent warehouse space next to our office to serve as our conference center. Working within the existing 1,140 square feet footprint, we were determined to incorporate unique architectural materials and mementos that were salvaged from past projects into a design that was equal parts a celebration of our past and functional space that supports a culture of openness and creativity.
Design features include:
- A fireplace that was salvaged from a renovation project of a home that was built in 1910. With the fireplace hearth being salvaged sandstone sidewalks.
- A stone wall that is made up of stones that were salvaged from a foundation of a home that was built before 1900.
- A drafting table that was gifted to our founder by a mentor.
- A sailboat that was rescued from a lifetime of permanent dust filled storage from a renovation project of a home that was built in 1910. Painstakingly refinished by artisans, it was installed as the centerpiece where it resides on sandstone capstones that were salvaged from a demo’ed chimney.
- Exit devices and brass door hardware that were salvaged from the former Van Sweringen Suite in Cleveland’s Terminal Tower.
- Doors and cabinets that were salvaged from a renovation project of a home that was built in 1910.
- Stainless steel sink tops that were salvaged from a renovation project of a home that was built in 1910.
- Gears from a demo’ed elevator that were installed onto wooden blocks and put on display.
- Sculptures, including pieces from Norbert Koehn, from the owner’s private collection.
- An original Viktor Schreckengost pedal plane.
- A stone gargoyle.
- An enclosed courtyard.
- Mezzanine office space.
