A love letter to a community, in vintage postcards

Mac Properties made a new home in International, the IBM-headquarters-turned-apartment-complex in Kansas City. Complementing interior design by Hufft and Silliman Group, the graphic art imbues the office and amenity spaces with evocative, vibrant personality.

Colorful treatments of vintage Kansas City postcards throughout the offices echo Mac Properties’ commitment to Armour Boulevard and renovation of local properties, including International.

Dividing the open offices from a residential lounge is an image of the IBM slogan as it once appeared in the company founder’s office. Printed on vinyl in black with a white gradient, it is rendered as ASCII art, a computer art technique dating back to the 1960s.

Wall-to-wall graphics in the meeting rooms are printed on Zintra panels, bringing immersive color and depth into the smaller spaces. The closed offices feature vinyl prints that playfully integrate the Mac Properties logo with a postcard image of Armour Boulevard.
