The Yondorf Block is an 1890’s, four-story, masonry building originally built as a lodge and meeting hall and currently listed on the National Register. The second and third floor is composed of a two-story auditorium space with an ornate metal proscenium and wood clad balcony.

The project involved the complete renovation and restoration of the entire building and required maintaining and rebuilding historic details, updating the mechanical and electrical systems; and restructuring the balcony/stage areas. A branch bank was built-out on the first floor and bank offices were installed on the fourth floor. The historic auditorium space was initially left as white box space but has since become a working performance space again.


Project Architect / Project Manager for the renovation of the second and third floor. Involved with design development and project estimating; directed the completion of the construction documents; provided bidding and construction administration support.
