Lansing's landmark Knapp's Centre building was honored with the 2015 Governor's Award for Historic Preservation. The adaptive reuse project modernized the circa-1937 landmark while preserving much of the building’s celebrated Streamline Art Moderne design. Quinn Evans Architects led a multi-discipline design team for the ambitious renovation, completed for the Lansing-based Eyde Company. Strict preservation guidelines structured the architectural response, which retained the five-story building’s historic integrity and limited modern interventions.
"I applaud the great work that takes place across the state and recognize the people who preserve these places for all Michiganders. The sites contribute to Michigan's uniqueness, teach us about the people who lived here in the past, and are important to a vibrant future."
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder
