We collaborated with the client to understand their desired aesthetics, unit sizes, and floor plans. Due to the client’s desire to leave some of the existing building features untouched, our team evaluated the existing structure to determine what could be left exposed, and reviewed code and sound transmission requirements to allow for high ceilings.
Our team provided modern apartment units with today’s desired amenities in a historic structure with a design that exposes components of the original construction, including brick walls, cement beams, pillars, and floors. Each of the units feature high ceilings and expansive picture windows with views of the lakeshore. The building was Muskegon’s first “skyscraper” 100 years ago, and its rooftop remains the highest manmade point in Muskegon, inspiring the name “Highpoint Flats”.
