887 Wylie Street

The adaptive reuse of this 1922 church reflects the design goal of conscientious place-making, honoring its significance within the Reynoldstown community of Atlanta. The creation of a collaborative design studio from the historic remnants respects a century of history and displays the design team’s commitment to high-design in existing places. In the spirit of conscientious place-making, the team pursued LEED Certification, with considerations for recycled content and product manufacturing proximity lending to the final selection of each material. Though the interior of the building has been repurposed as a design studio, the space celebrates the remnant architecture and stained glass windows. Brilliant color pops of carpet mirror the light streaming through the colored panes onto the floor, creating playful patterns and paths of interest.
