A 1940's Manufacturing Plant Turned into New Offices

Eppstein Uhen Architects renovated a 1940’s Allis Chalmers manufacturing plant in West Allis, Wisconsin into a new office space for Johnson Controls. The repurposed building has 130,000 square feet of space that keeps its industrial qualities while becoming modernized for a contemporary office.
