HOW DO YOU CONVERT WORK TO PLAY IN AN ALLEY?

Capitol Hill Warehouse Conversion

BUFFER THE HOME WITH SHARED SPACES

The conversion transforms a single-story co-working space into a single-family residence, slipping shared programs in through openings in the existing building’s shell.

The courtyard, studio space, and living room act both as programmatic and material buffers between the public life of the alley outside and the realm of private dwelling within.

A raised box of bedrooms and bathrooms is added into the existing framework, tucked away from the alley.
