Behind the Build: Guthrie Loft

When Appleseed started working on the Rhodes Carroll loft project, it was an outdated and non-functional residence.

FEATURED PROJECT: Modern Preservation at the John Hand Building

In a strange way, architecture is really an unfinished thing, because even though the building is finished, it takes on a new life.
