Urban Loft > This LEED Home Platinum residence is the conversion of a 3,000 SF derelict brick commercial building into an office on the ground floor and a loft apartment above. The 1,400 SF loft has a spacious, open layout for the public spaces, with an atrium-like entryway and clerestory windows, while the bedrooms are more private. Custom steel stairs lead to a home office and then to a vegetated roof. The residence features high levels of insulation, triple-glazed windows, radiant floor heating, a solar photovoltaic system, and reused and re-purposed materials. Photographs by James R.
