This project took advantage of the site’s natural grade to place parking below a 22,000 square foot office space addition. The former hardware store received a modern office interior while its original front facade was restored to an 1880’s appearance. Featured in CAM magazine for its floodproofing techniques, this project was also awarded a Michigan Building Award by the Michigan Historic Preservation Network citing the adaptive reuse of a significant historic structure.
