On its own terms
Open offices and shared common areas work in the space’s favor for a contemporary yet unobtrusive result.
Preserving and exposing
Original industrial windows, steel and raw concrete have all been retained, forming a historic frame for a contemporary office setting.
Rediscovered and reclaimed layer by layer to expose its inherent natural beauty and historic features, this once abandoned, underutilized penthouse space has been transformed into a high-end open-plan office level with 100% newly rentable square footage.
