The existing Windhover Center for the Arts took on the challenge of expanding their 16, 275 S.F. facility to allow the Center to develop and increase their space for Gallery Display, additional Entertainment and Performance Areas, Bar Areas, Office and Classroom spaces.

We were asked to provide these functional spaces and blend the Old and New buildings to make a “wow image” for the Center and the community.

After the purchase and removal of the adjacent vacant building, the existing addition built in 2000 was removed.  New major additions occurred including a 4,000 S.F., two level Contemporary Art “Cube” with a design reflective of the original Masonic Temple along with a 2,650 S.F. exterior Plaza.  Also added were the Lower Level Offices and Classroom Spaces below these Plaza and Cube spaces. 

A new Sheboygan Street Main Entry was provided along with a Service Entry off the rear parking lot.  The entire “1906 Masonic Temple” was also completely remodeled and upgraded. The new central core areas include two new Bars, Toilet Rooms, and Storage Areas.  This along with complete ADA/HC accessibility upgrades and HVAC, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Sprinkler system were provided.

The new Thelma Sadoff Family Center for the Arts, exceeds 33,485 S.F. and provides a marriage of old and new building themes harmoniously blended together into the new and exciting venue for displayed art and performance and entertainment in downtown Fond du Lac, WI.
