The building originally was built in 1891 by the Turners as The German-English Academy. Direct Supply reimagined the building into a creative and collaborative modern environment while staying true to original elements of the architecture. The Great Hall was converted back to its original expansive design with original wood flooring and cream city brick, creating an open environment for co-working and events. Discover several uniquely designed spaces throughout – guided tours will help you find “Betty White,” our “Mario Tube,” a door designed for visiting “Hobbits,” a “Mine Shaft” and our very special “Blatz Beer Machine.”
