Porter East Mixed Use Development
A former nursing home built in the 1970’s was donated to a non-profit for redevelopment. The street-facing side was reconstructed as small retail and office spaces. In the back, overlooking a wooded ravine, are apartments for low-income residents.
The original precast concrete structure was exposed along the front, and a new wood-clad wall highlights the entry.
Wooden slats on vertical posts provide sun shading and a place for tenant signage.
