Renovation of a one-story commercial building into an architect’s office and studio, keeping slightly reminiscent of its 1950s ancestry, while stepping into the current emerging arts district environment. The transformation began with removal of the roof and interior walls. Within the existing exterior walls and foundation, a new steel frame provided the support for the higher roof and created an open plan, while large wall openings were cut to allow for natural light, entry doors, and views. Insulation and a new skin of slate and standing seam metal layered over the existing masonry walls created a more watertight, insulated enclosure while preserving existing materials. The configuration of the light monitors shields the spaces below from direct sun while providing indirect light and color that changes with time of day, time of year, and weather conditions. Duvall Decker acting through its development entity, Eldon Development, led the development and financing of the project and served as architect for the design of the facility.
