The architectural and design firm, Gensler, has released interior concept renderings offering an initial look into what the development at 1808 S. Good Latimer Expressway could look like.
The property is planned to house a coworking space as well as residential lofts, office space for lease, coffee shop/cafe, makerspace, fitness room, meeting rooms, art gallery/event space, and a rest area.
LOFTwall founder Steven Kinder, who owns the property and is co-founder with Amy King on the GoodWork coworking company, envisions a community that is responsive to varying work needs. He’s employed environmental architect Gary Gene Olp, principal of Dallas-based GGO Architects, to help transform the old warehouse space with a focus on sustainability and green design.
Mike McKeown, a strategy director for Gensler, said his team took these goals into consideration when coming up with design concepts for the property.
“There’s just this blend between the raw, celebrating the existing character of the space and then adding some professional polished locations just to give it a good mix,” McKeown said of the design concept.
