Empire Properties

This adaptive reuse projects creates a lively, unique atmosphere and touches the space
gently, preserving as much existing character as possible. The rich history contained under layers
of dirt and dust was carefully extruded in order to reveal hidden details and restore the building’s
inherent charm. This delicate balance is achieved through painstakingly cleaned and exposed
brick, paint, and plaster, which, when combined with super-graphic architecture, creates a
singular experience and identity.
