Family-Friendly Renovation of a Brick Warehouse in Alabama

Family-Friendly Renovation of a Brick Warehouse in Alabama | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
In Alabama, a commercial building with a multifarious past begins a fresh chapter for a young family after a modern renovation.
ParadigmGallery's insight:

Love, love, love....contrasting to the student apartments around Auburn University, this industrial space was built in 1920 as a mercantile space in a thriving African-American neighborhood during segregation.The building has since hosted several pool halls, a barbershop, a Baptist church, a few cab companies, several restaurants, and, rather dubiously, a “fish shop.”

 

When the Hills purchased the building, they were unaware of its backstory —it was merely a termite-infested plumbing storehouse with a promising brick-and-concrete exterior. “During construction our neighbors kept coming up and sharing stories about getting their hair cut here, or eating here when it was a cafe,” David says. “We realized we had to be a little more careful. This thing had a life, a more interesting life, than we had ever imagined. We kind of stepped back a little bit and didn’t do some of the architectural moves that we originally thought we were going to do.”

 

The story is very interesting and the journey of renovating this building had some important messages for anyone taking on a project like this.

 

Bravo....Hill Family

ParadigmGallery's insight:

A beautiful conversion, almost too much of the original textures and elements missing. Of course my favorite rooms are those that give due respect to the industrial roots of the building. Leave a comment, I would like to hear your thoughts....PGMod

ParadigmGallery's insight:

I like interiors with rich textures and often that includes some "walls of character". "Grundge" is used literally and figuratively to describe an interior that is not pristine.....
