Southeast Knoxville, Tennessee is the building of glass for mixed use. Designed by Sanders Pace Architecture The project at the gateway between the intersection in the center of the city. The original use of the building includes an elevator where large vehicles can access all floors, installation of windshields and windows of cars. The largest vertical axis produced a plaque in the soil extremely inefficient, while 50% of existing square feet below the street level.
The project design addresses these shortcomings by finding a new vertical circulation core in an addition adjacent to the existing building. This new core allows the recovery movement of the floor space previously occupied by the existing lift, providing new residential spaces.
These additions are separated both in plan and cut a ribbon of glass and framed in a folded flat provides a clear distinction of the new program, while preserving the historical qualities of the existing building. A total of 15 housing units have been created only within a floor plate with a much more efficient use of new and modern finishes and structural elements of the original building.
The four retail spaces have direct access from the main pedestrian street, providing much needed activity for the district. A private parking in the building and a space for outdoor recreation for residents gives this mixed-use urban development in greater comfort, which is rarely found in a development center in the city.
