Port KC

In the existing 6,000 sf space, we took advantage of the 22’ tall ceilings by reusing two 40’ long shipping containers to create a second-floor mezzanine. The containers house a private conference room that cantilevers above the kitchen and overlooks the “PORT” social gathering space. The steel containers act as a bold and unconventional move that speaks to the industrial nature of Port KC‘s work in transportation and trade. A fresh palette of white and grey, with accents of white oak and Port KC‘s brand blue, are a nod to the refined nature of their commerce and development projects. The clean gallery wall along the public circulation presents an opportunity to connect Port KC with KC‘s creative community via a curated, rotating gallery of local artists’ works. The bold, communal and informative space was designed to conceptually embrace and physically enhance Port KC‘s mission.
