The renovation of 599 Empress Street was undertaken as a historic preservation project, incorporating modernist design principles and details. The result is the restoration of one of Winnipeg's best examples of a classic modernist building, while at the same time providing the client an office space that maintains flexibility for future growth and celebrates their rich history.
