A renowned Iron Mountain architecture firm has moved to a new historic home.
Blomquist Architects announced its relocation of its headquarters and studio to the historic Stephenson Court building in downtown Iron Mountain, which was recently celebrated by a ribbon cutting with the Dickinson Area Chamber of Commerce.
The move was part of an overall strategic plan, according to firm partner and architect Megan Blomquist. Since the firm itself and prinicipal architect Mark Blomquist are on the Michigan State Historic Preservation Office's list of historical architects, headquartering in a historic building downtown was important to the firm, she says.
"It was an easy decision to locate our new studio within the downtown district. Restoration and adaptive reuse of historic buildings are critical components of physical and economic revitalization. We wanted our move to contribute directly to that effort, locally," says Megan Blomquist.
The new headquarters is located at 127 S. Stephenson Ave, Suite 101.
