Editor’s Choice Award: The Schmidt Artist Lofts in St. Paul, Minn.

The ambitious Schmidt Artist Lofts, developed by Dominium and designed by BKV Group, was our 2015 Editor’s Choice winner. This adaptive-reuse of a 147-year old brewery into affordable housing was the culmination of a seven-year journey that “started with a hand sketch, and a possibility.” Here, lead BKV architect Mike Krych talks about the challenges of this transformative, ambitious project.
