We did several design studies to determine the best layout with the most architectural interest. The courtyards were inspired by homes in Italy and Spain where a central garden provides sunlight, fresh air and privacy. The variety of spaces within each condo make it more livable. Some rooms are open and light filled – others more cozy and intimate.
Maintaining as much of the original fabric of the building was important to give the condos a patina that you can’t get in new construction. Exposed wood trusses and brick complement the new concrete floors and oak carpentry.
The polished concrete floors have radiant heat to keep the condo comfortable and reduce utility costs. Heated exterior walkways keep ice and snow from accumulating.
