Once upon a time free coffee and bagels were all you needed to spark the inspiration of your workforce. Nothing against caffeine and carbs, but we believe increasing productivity, generating new ideas and forging fun (yes, fun) demand an offsite business experience like no other.
Write your next strategy. Brainstorm with reckless abandon. Host a memorable training session. Celebrate that milestone in style. Network like a pro. Champion your cause. Reap the myriad advantages that lie beyond your conference room at The Foundry.
Choose your space, and let our hospitality director handle your meeting or event details.
Hold your calls. Pause the emails. Sit back, relax and think without the boundaries and distractions of the office. Light and bright, flexible and functional, modern yet intimate—The Workshop offers unique opportunities for physical and virtual interaction, enhancing collaboration and co-creation. Bring your presentation to life with our 65” smart TV. Take a breather on our outdoor terrace with views of Portage Creek and the Kalamazoo River. Grab lunch at our onsite farm-to-table restaurant, or order in some eats.
While The Workshop comfortably accommodates up to 20 guests—voila!—it can be expanded into a larger space. It’s an ideal spot for kindling ideas, optimizing productivity and driving your work forward.
When you’re hoping to flesh out your next big idea, reflect on past accomplishments and milestones, and/or plan for future goals, does your cubicle, desk or conference room inspire you? No matter how creative and inviting the workspace, every employee needs a break from the same old, same old.
An escape from the daily grind, The Forum breathes fresh air into creativity and collaboration. Comfortable and flexible with a modern feel, The Forum accommodates a variety of directed and self-directed presentations. Seating up to 60 guests, this space can also be expanded into our adjacent Workshop. (Sure, we can reorganize the furniture to suit your group’s specific tastes and needs.)
Go ahead, have a meeting of several brilliant minds. Recognize and reinvigorate your team. Put a little pow into productivity. Bring your presentation to life with our projector and 120” retractable screen. Of course, tech support is available. Hungry? Have lunch brought in, or better yet, make a reservation at our onsite farm-to-table restaurant.

Features an open working bar, 65” customizable TV displays and professional sound system.

How many times have you heard the expression think outside the box? There are plenty of really good reasons to step outside your comfort zone, or hey, even just step outside. Whether you’re looking to lower stress, increase your focus and productivity or get your creative juices flowing, the simple act of going outdoors delivers big rewards.
That’s why The Foundry designed The Veranda, an idyllic spot for workplace meetings and gatherings, social and fundraising events, and company celebrations.
Entertain and inspire 150 guests with views of Portage Creek and the Kalamazoo River. Trust us, the fresh air and the change of scenery will do a world of good for you and your team. Furnished by Landscape Forms and equipped with a natural gas firepit, The Veranda is a beautiful extension of The Foundry’s Living Office concept.
Available for rent Monday through Friday after 5 p.m., and Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
