Margie’s Candies Building

Our clients came to us with a challenging program — design efficient residential units in an existing triangular-shaped, concrete and timber building without adding parking. We took advantage of the TOD ordinance to eliminate the need for on-site parking and designed unique layouts for each of the 20 dwelling units with various retained and salvaged elements while modernizing the infrastructure and adding an elevator and a roof deck. The middle of the triangular plan did not lend itself to livable space, so we added a large skylight to illuminate the interior. The ground floor houses retail suites, including Wormhole Coffee and Marz Brewing, which we also designed. Final photos here and more design details and process here.
