Kenosha Area Business Alliance (KABA)

Kenosha, Wisconsin

Positioned on a prominent street corner, this 12,000 square-foot abandoned historic building was retrofitted with new ground floor retail and second floor office space for KABA and the United Way.

Original brick walls, left exposed at the interiors, juxtapose new walls constructed using modern aluminum and glass.

Indirect cove lighting provides higher illumination levels where needed, in contrast with the otherwise dark wood ceilings.

A highly illuminated monumental stair leads visitors from the street level to the second-floor offices.
