IndependenceFirst is Metro Milwaukee's FIRST resource for questions regarding access and disability. They offer over 20 programs and services to people of all ages with disabilities of all kinds and provide programs on disability awareness, employment tips and access to the general community. Converting a former commercial bakery into a printing operation, Briohn renovated this 60,000 SF building with complete ADA accessibility for IndependenceFirst. The renovation included gutting the entire building and a complete interior build out, incorporating extensive use of skylights and glass office fronts to maximize the amount of natural light. The existing wood structure was preserved and cleaned to highlight the age of the building and then accented with new finishes.
