Old Door County Advocate building goes green

The old Door County Advocate building on North Third Avenue that was purchased last December is going through extensive remodeling.  Architect Virg Temme was hired by the new owner, Shirley Weese Young, to give the old downtown building a new interior look and an eco-friendly design.  She describes the improvements made to make the building green.



Temme explains the two biggest architectural challenges in remodeling the building.



The building will house three apartments on the second floor and a gallery called “Space” on the first floor that will have musical presentations and exhibits.  Temme says the north side of the building will offer a lobby and office expansion of the Third Avenue Playhouse.  The project should be done by November, according to Temme.
