Marguerite Rodgers Office

A 25,000-square-foot warehouse on North American Street has been home to Marguerite Rodgers since 1985. Meg initially purchased the shell of a building for her woodworking shop and business, which later evolved into a design-build enterprise. With Marguerite Rodgers leading the way, more creatives were drawn to the Kensington neighborhood, contributing to the revitalization of the former industrial corridor. By 1991, a central space in the building was dedicated to Marguerite Rodgers Interior Design, a unique, inspiring world unto itself. The high verticality and scale of the building easily accommodate numerous collections of art, furnishings, and memorabilia. At the heart of the space, a comfortable, great room reflects the spirit and soul of the company and acts as a gathering space, conference and work room. Framed on one side by a wall-sized Edgar Britton architectural wood carving and the other by framed gravures by Fernando Ongania and engravings of Venice, the room opens to the vast sample library, studios, offices, red barn lacquered doors, and a full kitchen for the staff. At once intriguing, eclectic, and pleasant, the place is purpose-built for the firm’s collaborative and creative efforts.
