Morehead Capital

Raleigh, North Carolina

Morehead Capital, a boutique Charlotte-based investment firm, engaged Gensler to convert a 16,000-square-foot storage facility into its new workspace. Gensler took this as an opportunity to re-envision what a headquarters can be and to reinvigorate not only the warehouse, but its neighborhood too. The design team harnessed the building’s stunning hilltop location overlooking downtown Raleigh and let the site drive the layout. By embracing the existing building fabric — the exposed steel structure and raw brick — and then inserting glazed openings throughout to fill the shell with natural light, the design introduces a new architectural language to the inside and outside of the office, and creates a fluid connection between them.
