Adaptive Re-use of a Former Library into Office Space.
The project strikes a balance between preserving the building’s rich heritage and converting the space into office space for the developer. The iconic structure, designed in 1912 by renowned architect Albert Pissis, will be meticulously renovated while seamlessly integrating two new additions.
Preserving the Past, Embracing the Future:
The project prioritizes the preservation of the library’s historic character. Decorative elements like the central stairway, interior ceiling coffers, and salvaged bookshelf wood will be retained, ensuring a connection to the building’s past.
