Founded and based in Milwaukee for 60 years, Mortgage Guaranty Insurance Corporation (MGIC) is a well-established beacon of home lending in the heart of the downtown area. Having occupied their Kilbourn Avenue location since 1972, time brought about an increase in the number of closed offices and visual barriers and a subsequent decrease in natural daylight and flexible workspaces. The company sought out a furniture design firm that would not only provide contemporary workplace solutions but would remain cognitive of the MGIC brand and culture and how it was depicted throughout their office. While keeping the integrity of MGIC’s original architecture intact, CDI helped create a bright, timeless space that is as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional.
For a company that has remained rooted in the Milwaukee community for decades, it was essential to provide MGIC with timeless design solutions that would speak to their multi-generational workforce. The elimination of high panels and visual barriers was the first step in creating an unsegmented, refreshed workspace. By incorporating floor to ceiling demountable glass walls, employees are provided privacy while natural light continues to permeate the surrounding office areas. Bold patterns in an array of colors energize informal collaboration areas and third spaces, while a mixture of wood grains, marble and laminate provide a contemporary air for conference rooms, workstations and private offices. Through close partnership with the MGIC project team, CDI was able to seamlessly fuse the old with the new, incorporating modern finishes and expansive layouts across thirteen floors and two buildings.
