Project Description:

An existing industrial cable company building in a former car dealership is being restored to its original Albert Kahn design with the removal of a 1970’s facade make over. The original building footprint is being shaped for residential use and two additional floors are being added, resulting in a 51 units building with ground floor commercial. The design direction of the addition is to extend the original “Kahn design”, which had planned for additional floor. This will be accomplished by “lifting off” the top articulation, extending the existing elements, and adding them to the new roof. The lower floor restoration of brick and decorative concrete will be faithfully replicated in the added floors.
