MAYES | WILSON office wins Mayor’s Design Award
In partnership with MMSD, National Wildlife Federation, City of Milwaukee |
Sara Wilson’s commercial and residential property the “Bike Path Building” which houses the offices of MAYES│WILSON and her residence was one of 18 properties recognized by the 2015 Mayor’s Design Awards for contributing to the built environment within the city of Milwaukee. The former tavern was rehabilitated as a live-work office and home. On the west side of the property, adjacent to the Oak Leaf bike trail, Sara has replaced invasive species with Wisconsin native plants and transformed a parking lot into an orchard, vegetable and butterfly garden. The native areas are Certified Wildlife Habitat® with the National Wildlife Federation.
