MILWAUKEE, WI – (May 25, 2017) – Madisen Maher Architects is proud to announce its Cream of the Cream City Award from The Milwaukee Historic Preservation Commission for The Historic Beam House at River Place Lofts. “The 19th century industrial space, formerly part of the Pfister Vogel Tannery, was transformed into 64 distinctive living environments, each designed to take advantage of building aesthetics and city views,” states Erik Madisen, Principal. “Located at 625 W. Freshwater Way in Walker’s Point, the apartments range in size from 750 to 1570 sq. ft.,” he adds.
The Beam House represents a unique opportunity to bring an 1870’s-era industrial building back to life. The design highlights Cream City brick, exposed columns/beams and arched-top windows. Modern design elements such as the steel and wood entry canopy have been integrated into the project. Amenities include bike racks, a community room and a guest suite. Design challenges involved overcoming non-aligning floors, a variety of structural systems and repair of damage from a major fire in 2005.
