The Sheds on Charlotte is a dramatic transformation of 50,000 SF of 1940s-era corrugated metal sheds into a light -filled office/retail complex encompassing an entire city block from 22nd and 23rd Avenues along Charlotte Avenue in Nashville, TN. Throughout the design and construction process, extra attention was given to keep the "bones" of the structure and many of the architectural elements of the existing building in place. An example of this can be found in the open courtyards, where the original steel trusses were left exposed and help create an outdoor space that flows seamlessly from building to building. Aluminum and glass garage doors open up to the courtyards allowing daylight and breezes into the creative work areas. Translucent wall panels were used on the end of the buildings, providing abundant natural light that accentuates the volume of the space, as well as providing a dramatic glow in the evening hours that can be seen along the Charlotte Avenue corridor.
