FEATURED PROJECT, HISTORIC RESTORATION, MULTI-FAMILY
The construction techniques to build the original structure created unique design challenges in renovating the 50,800 square feet, 7-story load-bearing masonry building.
Extensive coordination took place with the structural engineer and restoration contractors to ensure the historic integrity of the building was preserved. This work included routing all of the new MEP systems as discretely as possible and adding a new egress stair enclosure.
Some of the architectural design solutions included using the existing vaults as walk-in closets within the units and converting the main vault on the first floor into the fitness room.
