This is a typical Pittsburgh “sliver” building, with a floor plate just 20’ wide and 110’ long. There are lots of blocks and buildings this size in Pittsburgh and they are not easy to convert to a new, useful life. This historic building has windows at each end, and an elevator at the rear of the building. Its conversion presented huge challenges, ranging from zoning code and permitting issues, to an awkward first floor space. Each floor was converted into one wide open loft, the elevator remodeled from cage to passenger, ceiling timbers were exposed and hardwood floors polished. And bam! – it’s had happy occupants ever since. Interior design was by EDGE Studio and Eve built out the upper floors.
