The task here was to transform an abandoned derelict building into a habitable, live-work space.  This building was, at one time, a local neighborhood grocery, but that was long ago.  Our developer client wanted to created a new space what would allow for maker space and retail shop with an attached living space.  The budget was tight, the zoning was non-conforming, but the project was fun and we accepted the challenge.  The result was a great regeneration of an old building within a neighborhood.
