We are in the middle of construction for this mixed-use building located in downtown Nashville adjacent to the trendy Gulch neighborhood. The project is the renovation of the second floor loft living space and a new rooftop addition with two exterior wood decks for outdoor living and entertaining. A raised platform in the loft space will become an elevated lounge from where a custom steel stair leads up to the new roof bulkhead.
Construction broke ground earlier this spring and is expected to complete this fall.

Construction is nearing completion for this freight entrance and loading dock renovation project!
Responding to a shift in user patterns in this converted Beaux Arts manufacturing building following the extension of the #7 subway line to nearby Hudson Yards, we repurposed the back of house entry into a second pedestrian lobby, separating the still-active loading dock area from the newly adopted tenant access with a new glass and steel partition.
To minimize future maintenance and to honor the manufacturing roots of the loft building, the raw industrial character of the space was embraced; historic steel panels, masonry walls, and the original plaster ceilings were stripped of decades of paint and left to weather gracefully over time. Contrasting against these distressed finishes are crisp new light fixtures and bright industrial yellow wayfinding graphics.

We are also very excited to see our project on the cover!
