The renovation of this late 19th century mill listed on the National Register of Historic Places involved working with the community to write a new zoning regulation allowing adaptive reuse of mill buildings. We held several public community meetings to develop the project design and the new zoning regulation, garnering public favor. The mill suffered the loss of half of the fourth floor during a hurricane in 1938. To replace what was damaged, we designed new loft units with outdoor patios facing the water.  The patios allowed us to hold the new wall away from the face of the building, providing a more sympathetic and historically appropriate solution. The new living units highlight the mill’s construction with exposed brick, high ceilings, and heavy timber structure.
