Crown Center: Blu Dot Renovation

As phase II of the restoration of the Crown Iron Works site, Hillcrest redeveloped this decaying industrial space for the modern furniture design firm Blu Dot. Once used to assemble military airplane wings during World War II, the factory space had suffered decades of heavy usage, poor maintenance, pollution, and damage.

In consideration of the high aesthetic requests of Blu Dot, Hillcrest took special care to create a space that is modern, functional, and attractive. Floor-to-ceiling glass separates individual office spaces, while the communal gallery shares natural light that streams through the renovated clerestory windows. Specialized finishes were used to highlight the contrast between the dark exposed ceiling joists and the fine trusses, as well as to unify the various surface materials. The refinished concrete floor and exposed brick echo the historic nature of this once-industrial space, while wood panels, shelving, and tables help warm the space.
