This is not your cookie cutter apartment. You won’t find four square walls and aboxed-in habitat. You won’t find linoleum floors and spackled ceilings. You will find a modern urban space that will delight you withits textures and individuality.
Originally built in the 1950s, the building has been gutted
except for a few distinguishing characteristics, and repurposed into 12 unique living spaces. The architect made
every effort to preserve the clean lines
and open feel of the original building:
Ledges overhanging the south side bring light into the living spaces while
taking advantage of passive solar gain in the winter and passive protection
from summer heat. This means less money spent on energy to maintain a
comfortable temperature in each unit.
The classic 50’s style handrail system in the east and west
stairwells have been modified to meet current safety codes, but still retain
their elegant look.
Each unit has its own private outdoor space which is
integrated into the living area through large, energy conserving windows.
The building’s special dimensions and 50s era details helped
determine characteristics of the bold interiors. The result is a combination of industrial
chic and cozy radiance:
Concrete ceilings and utility pipes are left exposed
in most areas for a striking urban complexion.
Kitchens are flanked by a breakfast bar that seems to
float on sheets of frosted glass.
Your unit may have a small room that was formerly an
elevator shaft. Or it could have an individual, landscaped patio.
Nearly every apartment has a back door providing a second
1180 Clermont St. Apartments have inherited the vitality and
optimism of the 1950s. All they’re
missing is you.
