This June, the Wisconsin Housing & Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) celebrated its move to a newly constructed five-story, 92,000-square-foot building in downtown Madison. Part of a planned revitalization, the building’s full-brick façade with large windows showcases a contemporary industrial style, bridging between the neighborhood’s historic buildings and the East Washington Corridor’s new developments.
Designed by Potter Lawson, the refined industrial-inspired exterior continues inside WHEDA’s offices. Expansive windows, glass and metal partitions, and exposed infrastructure are complemented with a neutral color palette, including Rockfon’s white acoustic stone wool ceiling products.
To support the interior aesthetic and optimize acoustics for the open offices, Potter Lawson specified multiple Rockfon ceiling systems. Performance Contracting, Inc. installed all of Rockfon’s ceiling systems for WHEDA’s offices.
WHEDA provides affordable housing and business financing products by working with lenders, developers, local government, nonprofits and community groups.
