This urban re-development design for Greenville’s warehouse district incorporates reclaimed brick and textile mill-inspired touches. We organized dwellings around a courtyard. This creates a sense of community, while giving each resident views of the cityscape from private balconies.
In response to the client’s desire to raise the bar on construction quality, speed and material efficiency, we used a modular structural system with steel posts and panelized light gauge wall panels that serve as bracing. This approach results in an accurately framed structure, with better acoustic performance than conventional construction.
In summary, this is an architecturally integrated, restorative design with material-efficient design, use of recycled steel and reclaimed masonry, intentional day lighting and low VOC interior finishes.
