Project Description


Montgomery, McCracken, Walker & Rhoads, Law Firm Renovation, Philadelphia, PA

Montgomery, McCracken is a Philadelphia institution, much like its offices in a historic building on the Avenue of the Arts.  With experience in historic structures and an ability to give form to a firm’s identity, renovating the top seven floors of the building came naturally.

The overriding goal in this award-winning renovation was to create 21st century offices for a 350-person law firm in a historic structure.  The winning approach was to embrace the eccentricities of this 1927 office building, while improving its aesthetic appeal, technology and mechanical operations.

The uppermost floor houses a two-story, 3,200 square foot library with views of both the Delaware and Schuylkill Rivers.  The Justice Roberts Room, named after the Supreme Court Justice and firm founder, Owen J. Roberts, was completely restored and is now used for conferences, partners’ meetings, social affairs and community programs.
