The project repositions a landmarked 1912 warehouse into a contemporary office building.  The initial inspiration was to expose the inherent good qualities of the existing building obscured by years of modifications. Once the repositioning of the core and shell were complete a re-occupation of the space by its new tenant, Airbnb, was possible.
