The client wanted the exterior to project a fresh take on the existing industrial area appearing clean and sophisticated, but still reflecting the scale and industrial nature of the area. At one time, the area was all warehouses and factories, but has been transitioning quickly into Design Showrooms, Interior Designer offices, Galleries, and Restaurants. The clean lines of the renovated building fit well with the new use of spaces in this area.
The large service bay openings were in-filled with windows recalling garage doors, keeping offices at the perimeter of the building, and creating shared workspaces in the interior.
This interior development takes advantage of the existing ceiling height, creating a clean, bright, and airy space.
