Maybe you wondered why our office has this really cool mural of a car on the wall, it’s because our building used to be a car dealership in downtown Indiana, PA. Our architecture firms’ Indiana Studio received a Gold Designation as a Sustainable Small Business by the Sustainable Pittsburgh’s Champions for Sustainability business network.

Sitting at the intersection of various modes of transit alongside one of the most culturally-rich corridors in metro Atlanta, we are thrilled to create a bustling spot for those near and far to enjoy. 🔭
Finally got to visit this textile mill built in the 1950s and converted into a retail, culture and art complex. Fantastic example of adaptive reuse. Worth the schlep on your next visit to Hong Kong! #upcycling#adaptivereuse#themillshk

TBT | architecture students at Stockholm's Royal Institute of Technology have their own building a departure from the brick vernacular on campus – a round block with weathering Corten steel walls by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter - Stockholm let’s make it a point to meet up again.
#tbt to the future home of @driftercoffee before construction started last Fall! ☕️Scroll right for a work in progress shot ... @five_8ths and the Drifter team have been hard at work putting on the finishing touches before this cute little coffee spot opens!
A sea of shoring in what will become a lecture hall. The existing masonry bearing wall has been removed and the new structural steel is in place at our Buena Park Historic District project. This is an adaptive reuse project of a 1917 mansion designed by prominent Chicago architects, the Doerr Brothers. The new owners, a book publisher, will reposition the historic mansion to provide a community-oriented lecture hall, library, and offices. #chicago #architecture#chicagoarchitecture #adaptivereuse#architecturelovers #architecturehunter#buenapark #buenaparklandmark#landmarkdistrict #masonry#historicmansion#34ten#design#interiors

Historic adaptive reuse of the (commonly known as) Hummingbird Hotel: This simple mission style building served as a hotel on/off in downtown #lakeworth since its construction in the 1920's, until eventually closing its doors early in the 2000's. The building will reopen its doors this year as @emergelakeworth offering turn key office suites right in the center of the city. #architecture#adaptivereuse#design#realestate#florida
1951 - арх. Лина Бо Барди, Бразилия. Как возможно было быть настолько прогрессивной ещё 70 лет назад? В проекте адаптации текстильной фабрики интервенция выделена новыми элементами - они выполнены в виде отдельностоящих объемов из бетона, без последующей отделки. Лине удалось не только отстоять провокационную идею, но и добиться качественной реализации. Специально для этого проекта архитектор разработала вот такую необычную мебель, устойчивую к активной эксплуатации в культурном центре. И это не шутка, люди действительно до сих пор приходят играть сюда в шахматы, готовиться к сессии и просто общаться. Сегодня, во времена нашествия гаджетов, это место приобрело новый смысл. Теперь сюда приходят скорее не за информацией, а скрыться от излишней информации. А потребность в настоящем общении, с глазу на глаз, актуальнее прежнего. Мне, как архитектору, интересно как меняется жизнь в городе. Расскажите, ходите ли вы в культурные центры, какие и зачем? #женщинавархитектуре #womeninarchitecture#linabobardi#sescpompeia#sesc
The history of the Jenny Lind House that we are restoring is long and varied and most likely started with the building of this room in the 1800’s. In the early 1920’s the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, otherwise known as PAFA, owned the village of @historicyellowsprings where they ran the first Plein Air Painting school in the country. Members of that program painted this mural above the fireplace and one other, that seems to be eluding us thus far. As you can see from the photos, it is damaged from years of neglect and moisture in the house from leaks and water in places there shouldn’t be water. Water and no heat left unchecked in these old houses, yet alone any house causes mold, destruction and a compromising of the structure itself. We are hoping to restore this house as well as the mural. Why you ask? We think that it’s important that we not erase the testaments from the people who came before us, who built this house with far more blood, sweat and tears than it takes these days. The mural, the stone work, the wood floors are all works of art in their own right which should be admired. To knock this down, which is what will end up happening if it is not strengthened, fortified and turned into an adaptive reuse project would ignore the prints that the inhabitants of this house left on our American history... which happens all to often in this country. #lifespatina#willowbrookfarm#jennylind#jennylindhouse#historicyellowsprings#restoration#historicpreservation#historicpreservationmatters#artandhistory#historichome#adaptivereuse#architecture#pafa#pleinairpainting#chestercounty#westwhiteland#chestersprings
