Ann Arbor, Michigan
The adaptive reuse of the historic Eaton Building site, a former industrial assembly plant, involved the transformation of an abandoned building into Liberty Lofts, a luxury residential project. The shell of the aging building was restored, the entrance and lobby area were renovated and rooftop penthouses or balconies were added to each loft. The five-story addition creates a contemporary loft living space, while still evoking similar architectural elements and details of the existing structure. This project renewed a formerly imposing industrial building into a luxury residential building that blends into the surrounding neighborhood.
