This project involved the adaptive reuse of existing building that was re-purposed and completely renovated to house 26 efficiency apartment units for veterans. The building envelope and roof line as well as the traditional building exterior of brick masonry were preserved, but the windows and doors and the entire interior were gutted and replaced with new construction. The renovation included some amenity space, accessible units and an elevator to serve all four levels. A key feature of the design was the elimination of interior masonry chimney flues to create more usable space. But the brick chimneys above the roof were preserved by supporting them on new steel beams at the attic level.
