MacLac Building D – Merit Award

This project is the adaptive reuse of a historic brick structure occupied by various quasi-industrial functions. The renovation focuses on razing the maze resulting from a century-plus accretion of ad hoc partitions, random levels, and obsolete industrial equipment installations; exposing a previously hidden, magnificent volume of the building; repairing and refurbishing the original materials and features; reinforcing the building with 21st Century steel seismic elements, and bringing extra natural lights and open space.

”This handsome adaptive reuse project shows a well resolved and elegant seismic solution.”
