Railroad Square

A historic renovation aimed at recycling existing materials

Shannon Waltchack’s office, part of the Railroad Square renovation, was a grass-roots collaboration between owner, architect, contractor and local artisans to reuse an existing structure, recycle materials, and create an innovative working environment all while maintaining a strict budget.

Existing masonry and flooring were preserved and recycled wood siding from old barns was used to clad walls, a reception desk and ceilings in part.

Recycled glass countertops were used in the break room and system glass walls saved on installation cost which allowed for more glass, openness and visibility throughout the office.
