Sustainable Warehouse Conversion Industrial Home Office, Atlanta

Two adjacent warehouse units in a circa 1915 building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, were combined into a single modern live / work space. Careful consideration was paid to honoring and preserving original elements like exposed brick walls, timber beams and columns, hardwood and concrete floors and plaster walls.

Hi JBrown - thanks so much for asking. We came upon the wall in that exact condition while renovating two 100+ year-old warehouse units into a single residence. Prior occupants had put sheetrock over the original plaster, and when we stripped the space and saw what was there, we thought it was so beautiful we just couldn't cover it up again. I love that it changes as it ages - there was no way we were going to paint it over! You can achieve a similar effect with layers of Venetian plaster, available at most paint stores. Your best bet is to hire someone who specializes in faux finishes, as achieving so many different colors can quite painstaking. We use James Hoback of Wiltshire Finish for similar projects:
