Barranger Building

This ambitious project focuses on repurposing existing office space into modern and efficient living units, seamlessly blending the rich history of the structure with contemporary residential functionality.

Our team preserved the landmark’s beauty, integrating historical elements, and converted office space into vibrant living units, revitalizing its purpose.


Historic Preservation:  The project revolves around preserving the intrinsic beauty and historical significance of the high-rise building, while breathing new life into its purpose.  Our team meticulously identified and integrated architectural elements that pay homage to the building’s past, ensuring a harmonious coexistence between the old and the new.

Technical Successes:  In the intricate process of revitalizing this historic high-rise building, our team achieved a delicate balance between modern functionality and preservation of century-old architectural details. Notably, the successful integration of new underfloor plumbing systems stands as a testament to our commitment to preserving the building’s historical integrity. Meticulous planning and expertise allowed us to navigate the challenge of concealing state-of-the-art plumbing beneath the floors while safeguarding the ornate plaster ceilings in the space immediately below. Our innovative approach ensured that the plumbing retrofit seamlessly blended with the existing structure, maintaining the authenticity of the 120-year-old detailed historic plaster ceilings, and contributing to the overall success of the adaptive reuse project.

Space Optimization:  The challenge of converting office spaces into efficient living units demanded a keen understanding of spatial dynamics.  Our architects meticulously planned each unit to maximize functionality without compromising on comfort.  Thoughtful space utilization, multifunctional furniture, and innovative storage solutions contribute to a seamless and comfortable living experience.

Sustainability:  Sustainability is at the core of our design philosophy.  The adaptive reuse of the existing structure not only reduces the environmental impact associated with new construction but also adds a layer of sustainability to the project.  

Modern Living in Historic setting:  Recognizing the evolving needs of modern urban dwellers, we integrated state-of -the art amenities seamlessly into the historic fabric of the building.  The project offers a contemporary lifestyle while preserving the building’s authentic character.

This adaptive reuse project stands as a testament to our office’s commitment to thoughtful, sustainable design that respects the past while embracing the future.  It showcases our ability to transform existing structures into modern, dynamic spaces that meet the needs of contemporary urban living.
