Architectural Inspiration: The MA Home Tour Talks at Room & Board

A well-designed environment changes attitudes and habits – it can stimulate prosperity, creativity, hope and health.

MA and Room & Board are proud to present a series of talks by the architects, designers, builders and remodelers who are part of the MA Home Tour. They will present their hands-on, ground-up experiences of designing and building the residences and commercial spaces that inspire and excite the MA Home Tour attendees as well as the occupants who live and work in these innovative spaces.

Speakers: Vivian Bencich, IIDA, John Bencich, AIA LEED AP BD+C, Square Feet Studio

Featured Projects: White Provision’s Room & Board showroom and a furniture retailer based in Shanghai

Vivian and John Bencich of Square Feet Studio will talk about their roles in transforming an abandoned meatpacking facility into the Room & Board showroom, site of this Modern Atlanta lecture, highlighting the unique opportunities inherent in the adaptive reuse of an older building. Keeping with the same design theme, they will also discuss their design work for a current project – a Chinese furniture retailer in Shanghai.
