I-BEAM HOUSE

 

A 4-story school building was converted in the 1960s into a 5-storey residential building.  This created a sectional shift on the top floor that pushed the roof upward, but left the original steel structure behind.  The current renovation exposes these massive I-beams to create a 1.5-storey, loft-style unit.
