Southside New Home
This historic building’s owners teamed up with Brad Shelton at Elemi Architecture and Collier Construction to develop a contemporary, urban residence that draws on a modern aesthetic to complement the structure’s historic integrity.
The home features a stained concrete slab and back patio, an open floor plan with enough space for three bedrooms and two baths, and a large skylight to allow natural daylighting to pass through to the ground level.
Rehab means repurposing, recycling, and rethinking space to accommodate new ideas and new lifestyles—all while respecting the character of existing infrastructure. So as part of the construction plans, Collier recycled and reused the demolished floor system on-site. Existing 2 x 12 lumber was reincorporated into the building’s new floor structure. Although many of the construction methods used are hidden from plain view, the building’s dramatic transformation is evident from the inside out.
