West Bottoms Flats: A Visual Journal

While retaining the historical facades and many of the interior architectural features of the buildings, the West Bottoms Flats will include 265 residential units, tenant amenities, ground-level commercial spaces to activate street-level, and parking, which will all help revitalize this historic, formerly industrial area.

James Pfeiffer and Elvis Achelpohl, two designers on the project, have been documenting the design experience. Explore the visual journal below.

The thoughtful details and dramatic presence that ultimately won the judges over can be credited to the concerted effort of the entire team.
