PABST PROFESSIONAL CENTER
The Pabst Professional Center is a new five story office building within 'The Brewery' neighborhood in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Located in the neighborhood that was once a thriving brewery for Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer, this modern building design evokes a reminiscent industrial quality of its historic surroundings. The use of glass, dark brick cladding, and warm wood tones create a modern re-interpretation of the historic design aesthetic that the brewery buildings evoke to this day.
With floor to ceiling glass on the prominent southwest corner of the building, the project acts as a beacon of the district that not only terminates the Juneau avenue corridor but is also highly visible from the freeway directly to the west. The building entry, off of Juneau street, is comprised of a small outdoor plaza and double height lobby that opens up to the adjacent Brewhouse Inn & Suites beer garden to the east. The upper office floors of the building are designed to have an urban loft appeal with exposed structure and long ribbon windows providing panoramic views of the adjacent Pabst Brewery buildings and views of the downtown skyline.
