Two Ton Inc.


A former bike shop across from the Montgomery Street Post Office was turned into Two Ton Inc, an architectural/industrial design team of Luke Mandel and Peter Benarcik from 2004-2008. Two Ton designed buildings large and small as well as designed and fabricated their own furniture. Their conversion of the space began the summer of 2004.

In 2008 partner Luke Mandel sold the building and moved the studio and his family to Minnesota. Peter has left for San Francisco a few years earlier. New owners have taken over the space and we are not sure what they did with it since these pictures were taken.

The information about each building grows as visitors let us know about their experiences. Did you or a member of your family work here? Did you grow up near it as a child? Let us know.
