To most people this 100+ year old brick factory building only looked to be headed to the scrapheap. But we saw so much more. We discerned and unearthed a diamond in the rough.
The Berry Boltworks renovation sparked the development of a new neighborhood on the city’s north side, Jeffrey Place. The design reinterprets the office as residential in scale, comfort and sensibility, and capitalizes on the rich material palette in this historic structure. The office suites feel more like home than work. All of the exterior walls are exposed brick, the floors are historic hardwood, and an exposed beam ceiling adds visual interest. All of the spaces in the building are bathed in natural light, and double hung windows allow natural ventilation for individual occupant comfort. The building just feels welcoming, familiar, and inviting. Tenants are inspired to be their creative best.Tim Hawk - President of WSA Studio
