MadAve Building (AltSource)

URM Adaptive reuse / creative/tech office

It all started with Alt Source a locally grown tech company. They bought an old warehouse on Hawthorne between 11 and 12th, and thought it would be cool to have the whole office together in a warehouse setting. Siteworks Design Build was trusted to take a very humble building into the modern tech world. The big moves were the an added second story with a Northwest modern contrast to the existing building. What was once a dark and bumpy warehouse became open to light and Air. The central stair communicates with the entire space, and the complete addition of new sturdy glass and structure make this building ready for the next century. Other than that Siteworks preserved the old structure of Timbers and trusses for a touch of narrative. The building is wired alive, full of day light and working to inspire the next generation of Alt source.
