Historic renovations can be a tough project when buildings of significance are involved. The old Oriental Warehouse in San Francisco‘s South Beach District is a prime example of how to renovate right. Reconfigured in 2010, the old building was transformed into a luxe urban space by Edmonds + Lee Architects.
Leaving plenty of exposed brick, concrete and timber was the key to this overhaul. While the shell and its structural contents are all old and rustic feeling, the rest of this interior is sleek and contemporary. Of course, a large grouping of Tom Dixons reflect a huge part of the focal point in the lower level, while sheet glazing makes up a huge portion of the upstairs.
