AIA Pittsburgh Design Award

Certificate of Merit, 2009

“The jury admired this modest adaptive reuse that transformed the existing building into a vibrant part of a new urban street fabric while keeping the utilitarian nature of the original garage intact. The jury found it both skillful and lively in the weaving of the large scale and the intimate scale, and of urban and tectonic gestures. In this same light, it is a model for renovating buildings that can express a respect for the tradition of simple and honest structures alongside the complexities of new programs and urban roles.”
