801 Washington Lofts

This conversion of a three-story, timber-frame, masonry-wall warehouse building into live/work lofts in Minneapolis’ North Loop neighborhood within the historic Warehouse District was the first project of its kind in the area to open.

MSR’s design respects the original building’s modest exterior, while dramatically recasting its form and function inside. An interior street provides secure access and visibility to all units on the interior, while the first floor units have direct outside street access to allow them to function as residential or commercial spaces. The expansive ceiling heights provide space for mezzanine levels within most units, creating opportunities to customize spaces to suit different life styles and to commingle private and professional functions.
