This Macro-Unit project takes an existing warehouse shell as its site and inserts 24 new Work-Live units into the envelope of the structure. The existing space and structure act as collaborators, interacting with the design of the new space to create unique, dynamic, and diverse volumes. The new interior reconfiguration begins by carving out a new courtyard at the center of the existing building to allow for light, air, and access.
