HNI Gunlocke

Muscatine, Iowa
January 1st 2006

Rather than build a new headquarters on a suburban site, HNI Gunlocke found value in an existing building in downtown Muscatine. This choice not only revitalized the aging city, but the company itself. Once scattered throughout Muscatine, HNI is now consolidated in an open, environmentally responsible building. Gensler helped strengthen the HNI community by lowering workstation heights and removing portions of the floors to create sight lines throughout the building. The renovation opens the façade to main street and the river.
