Hastings Building

In 2015, Floisand Studio designed the renovation of the Hastings Building and the interiors of one of its tenants, Pagliacci Pizza.  The original brick building was built in 1905 with three separate storefronts, a brick foundation, wood framed windows, and cloth awnings.  In 2014, a car crashed into the building leaving it uninhabitable.  Our work focused on making the building structurally sound, peeling back the layers of previous remodels and restoring its historic features to their original period of significance.  The project required extensive structural upgrades, the restoration of original openings and the design of new canopies similar in configuration to the original cloth awnings. We designed new skylights to bring in natural light and enhance daylighting.  We repaired, exposed and highlighted the existing brick.
