This project houses a growing graphic/product design office within an existing brick building located in the Jackson square historic district. The design requires the removal of all the existing interior structure while leaving the existing perimeter brick structure and original front facade intact.
The new design is comprised of inserting a steel ribbon frame at the front of the facade to create a large jacketed bay window, and adding a second story structure that connects to an open roof deck area above. A series of steel moment frames are used for the primary structure throughout the building to seismically brace the existing brick walls and to collect the additional loads of the new second story.
The roof plane and roof deck have been peeled back slightly from the perimeter walls to create skylight openings and allow natural light to spill into the core of the building. The main office and conference areas are located on the first floor; additional office space and archive exhibit space on the second floor.
