The Lawson Building

The Lawson Building project focused on the adaptive reused of a 25,000 sq. ft. merchandise warehouse in Downtown Roanoke, VA into a mixed use development with 22 moderate income apartments, 2 studio live/work units, and a commercial office. Our design objectives were to refocus and contrast the complex industrial streetscape with a comprehensive natural planting scheme that emphasized the sites larger relation to the city. Today the Lawson Building East is a stable, thriving community.
