» Project finished in Wheaton

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

Rs2 Architects has finished an adaptive reuse project in downtown Wheaton. The two story brick building originally housed a retail farm implement store which dated back to Wheaton’s agricultural past. Recent tenants included a retail furniture store. Rs2 Architects has converted the occupancy use from retail to office space. The interior has been completely renovated. The original tin ceiling has been completely restored. Underneath soffits and exterior signage, the original leaded glass windows were uncovered and restored. A new custom fabricated kitchen for employee convenience was built by Mike Wilson of Hummingbird Woodworks. The second floor also has been completely renovated, new bathrooms and extensive restoration of the original mill work and flooring. The exterior has received a new bluestone patio, stone fireplace and ADA compliant entrance.




» Groundbreaking at the Villa Park VFW

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

Recently RS2 Architects principals Erick Roldan and Chuck Seen participated in a groundbreaking ceremony at the Villa Park VFW. RS2 Architects donated its architectural services for the design of a new ADA accessible ramp for the VFW’s existing facility. Currently there is is no accessible entrance, disabled veterans have to be carried or lifted by other members up stairs to participate in the posts activities. Some of the dignitaries attending were Post Commander Dennis Geisemanm, Villa Park President Tom Cullerton and Alberto Valasco who is from Representative Peter Roskam’s office and also a representative from the Wounded Warrior Program in Washington DC.

The Post is currently seeking additional contributions to complete the project. Contributions can be brought or sent to the post at VFW Post 2801, 39 St. Charles Road, Villa Park, IL 60181.

» RS2 Architects Donates Services

RS2 Architects has teamed with the Villa Park VFW to design a new ADA handicap ramp for their facility. The VFW provides an outlet for the support of our veterans, and as such we felt it is one small way we can say thank you for their service. The current facility has an elevated first floor with no means for disabled persons to enter the facility. The new ramp will allow the VFW post to better serve its mission and welcome all those returning home from conflict that want to take part in the VFW programs. RS2 Architects is donating its architecture design as well as construction document preparation services.
