Over a six-month period about two dozen people worked at transforming the Post Office Garage Depot from a forgotten space into a celebrated place that allowed for imagination to flourish. This never would have been possible without the strong friendships and camaraderie of all the talented people who participated. Every dimension of this process required the care and creativity of our team as we re-envisioned the essence of this 1930’s building.
