Select Design Building

Select Design is a brand development agency located in the south end of Burlington, Vermont. Located in the former Vermont Milk Chocolate Company building on Flynn Ave. Select Design has been working with SAS Architects since 2004 in transforming this former chocolate plant into an eclectic workspace. In 2014, SAS Architects added a slender three story addition that moved the original side entrance to the front of the building while a central staircase and elevator gives access to all floors of the building. Designed with repurposed building materials and equipment, the front entry unifies the space with Select Designs branding and design work mixed seamlessly into the space. 

SAS Architects were looking to capture the building at dusk to show off the addition and new entryway, as well as a few interior shots showcasing how the central staircase ties the old building with the new addition and a fun wall divider made from repurposed stairs. Below are the photographs from that night.
