Story

Baker Book House celebrated the completion of the renovation and expansion of their facility located at 2768 East Paris SE, Grand Rapids, Michigan. The new design positioned the retail floor space more visibly toward the street and moved warehouse operations to the rear of the building. 

“The challenge of re-configuring the entire facility while the business stayed open and operational was accomplished through the cooperation of the committed staff at Baker Book and Integrated. Everyone maintained a ‘can do’ attitude throughout the project,” said John Boonstra, Orion Construction partner.

Filled with natural light with open views to passersby, Baker Book House is more than a bookstore—it’s a destination. A café, fireside reading area, community room, children’s play area and author presentation space combine to offer a multidimensional home for bibliophiles. Fresh and contemporary, the bookstore’s neutral color palette provides a backdrop to the books and merchandise while spots of red/orange and green create interior landmarks for the information desk and café.
