When you pull up outside our building, step in through the doors and are greeted by our office mascot, you’ll feel something right away…a sense of energy, creativity, fun and a deep rooted history.
From the moment we laid eyes on our facility, located at 126 Main Street in Downtown Pewaukee, it became a part of our story and an important tangible feature of our brand. Sunlight. Color. Texture. Open spaces. Collaborative areas. Nooks and crannies to hunker down in.
We call it home, and we hope you will too.
Built in 1924, the building at 126 Main Street operated for nearly 100 years as a Masonic Temple. When we first toured the property in early 2014, it had been sitting vacant for almost two years. While many others had toured the space, no one was up to the challenge that Mangold Creative was – taking a 100 year old, 5,300 square foot space, and completing a major renovation for our growing marketing firm.

Our new home features a fresh facade, colorful interior, and a fun collaborative work environment.
Throughout the process, we were able to preserve touches of the 1920’s, marrying the historic elements of the building with our modern and colorful furnishings and design. Some of our favorite historic touches include:
Originally located in the utility room, this 1920’s stainless steel sink was reconfigured and repurposed as the centerpiece of our new kitchen.
A find for sure! Underneath the aging, musty carpet on the second level were beautiful hardwood floors which were refinished in a warm natural tone.
Originally used in the main assembly area, we were able to repurpose and refinish these historic theater chairs as a fun element in our reception area.
They don’t build them like they used to! The lower level Mangold Creativity Center features five oversized iron beams. Look closely – you can see the original stampings.
The beauty of this original brick has withstood the test of time, with new windows and insulation, history meets energy efficiency at Mangold Creative
We were even able to repurpose some old drawers and a door in a Gallery display of before and after photos, paired perfectly with functional a coat rack.
The “Mangold Creativity Center” is a modern and fun multipurpose space, with touches of the 1920’s building history. Approximately 27′ wide x 47′ long, you’ll have 1,269 square feet total of space to be inspired, creative and strategic!
It is available for rental for your next:
Unfortunately, the Mangold Creativity Center is not ADA accessible. That’s the drawback to a 100-year-old facility. There are, however, only five steps to access the lower level so hopefully most of your guests can join you for your event. There are two unisex restrooms on the same floor.
