Ice House Lofts Building B

  • Building B was a single story, concrete structure with a loading dock along its north elevation, and a concrete sub-structure along the south elevation. Most of the original structure remains, but new structure was added for the Second Floor, adding additional residential units, and to stabilize the renovated shell. Each unit has a mezzanine "Loft" level, providing additional space, views and living amenities. A central corridor provides a sense of community provides a location for the complex‚Äôs mailboxes and connects the elevator to Buildings A & C.

    The building was opened up to allow daylight deep into the new units, using large windows that slide open to provide natural breezes. The loading Docks were subdivided to provide patios for the first floor units, with balconies providing the same amenities for the second floor units. The patio walls are composed of materials reclaimed from the renovated existing structure. The Balconies have additional shading elements, mitigating heat gain for the balconies and the units.

    The lower levels was designed for living and entertaining, with the loft area for sleeping. Stacked cores added to the efficiency of the space. The sub building was designed as mother in-law/studio rental/guest loft/second bedroom units. The space between is a patio. The designs I was involved with included a roof top entertainment deck, which was cut from the final design.
