The re-use of the warehouse into a single residence provided many creative opportunities. Often a site’s disadvantages become its features, as necessity is the mother of invention.

The design is a building within a building. Courtyard voids provide light and ventilation throughout, separating the buildings but linked by bridges and platforms.
