Sherman Perk Cafe
Stream-lined Moderne architecture.
The Sherman Park neighborhood is one of the most diverse in the city of Milwaukee. This is an example of the diversity of architecture in the area; Stream-lined Moderne. It exemplifies the Streamline Moderne’s philosophy of integrating man, nature and machine through aesthetics. Quorum worked with the Owner to restore and connect a building that was slated for demolition into a successful coffee shop that is an anchor in this historic neighborhood. Included in Quorum's services was the successful application for National Historic Landmark status and working with the National Park Service and Wisconsin Historical Society to get the renovation acceptible for historic preservation tax credits. What was once a filing station is now a successful neighborhood cafe, in the heart of Sherman Park.
