A longtime client has asked me to document the renovation of an aging downtown Topeka building for their new offices. It’s definitely in a rough state. The first floor has been recently remodeled but is pretty much a blank white box. The upper two floors are a different story (no pun intended). They’ve been vacant for I don’t know how long and are a real mess. The plans show that this is going to be a fantastic space but, for now, it’s a dark hole. Still, I had a blast finding my way around by flashlight and discovering all manner of decay that will soon be removed and replaced with a high-end, modern space. Here are a few of my favorite finds from this morning’s “before” shoot.
