Residential and Housing
IGW provided feasibility, planning and design services for the conversion of a derelict, two-story office building into a mixed-use commercial-residential facility with first floor lease space and second floor loft apartments. Located near downtown Champaign, Illinois, the project involved extensive renovation and reimaging of the building’s exterior including the replacement of exterior masonry, windows, doors and roofing. In addition, inset balconies were provided for each apartment.
Interior space was also reconfigured and modernized including new kitchens, bathrooms and mechanical-electrical systems with new flooring, finishes, fixtures and window treatments throughout. A building entry plaza with ramp and stairs was developed to provide accessibility from an adjacent parking area.
