The jury commented, “This clever adaptive reuse of an existing warehouse building to create affordable housing using Universal Design standards really ‘hit it out of the park.’ The jury appreciated the interconnected series of open-air courtyards that function as pedestrian streets and spaces for community-building.”

Our office, Jackson Modern, at 311 N 2nd St also received an Honorable Mention for Small Projects under $500,000. “This project is not like any of the others,” said one juror. β€œIt’s respectful of its context. I really love the section and the skylights.”
