Carter Yard
Sierra Madre, CA  |  In construction

12,000sf adaptive reuse of a former lumber yard into creative offices and artist studios located downtown Sierra Madre.  Built in 1936 with additions in the 70’s & 80’s the simple horseshoe building arrangement organizes studios around a newly landscaped parking courtyard and orients openings towards the San Gabriel mountains to the north.  Street improvements include revitalizing the original cottage fronting the sidewalk with industrial materials and re-purposing a former storage space as a coffee shop opening to a landscaped courtyard.
