Located in the Budd Dairy Building, SHP’s own dynamic loft office creates a modern working environment within the historic character and industrial nature of the original 1916 milk bottling facility. The space fosters connection and synergy among employees and allows for flexibility in working styles and processes.

"One of the project's primary goals was to highlight the original architecture of the building with a modest intervention that played up the original exposed brick wall, bow-string trusses and concrete floors. New finishes and furniture embrace the rough and worn aesthetic so as to not lose the building's industrial spirit."
– Jeffrey Sackenheim, Vice President of Architecture, SHP
