The Cork Factory Lofts

Pittsburg, PA United States

Antunovich Associates, Sherwin-Williams

 

Project Description

2011 RADA

Adaptive Reuse / Merit

Built in 1901, the former Armstrong Cork Factory now gleans with a fresh makeover after Antunovich Associates converted it into 297 loft apartments. The firm restored worthwhile elements such as the red brick, silo, and engine room, but, on the adjacent lot, it added necessary elements for modern habitation: a 427-space parking garage and 47,000 square feet of retail. Units are highlighted by 14-foot exposed ceilings, exposed brick walls, and riverfront views.
