South Works Apartments


Once an active steel milling neighborhood, Southside has grown into an upscale, eclectic, and vibrant community with retail, housing, theaters, offices, and miles of recreation space along the river. The design of Southside Works plays off the rich aesthetics of Art Deco, a movement that was inspired by an industrial era where machines and transportation dominated, and illusions and mythologies of yesteryear provided inspiration for the art, sculpture, and architecture of the time. The design offers an Art-Deco inspired, contemporary and forward-thinking approach to housing through varieties of dwelling choices. The exterior materials emphasize the horizontal extension of the site and river through multi-colored face-brick banding (pulling in the colors of Carson Street) and silver metal horizontal tracings.
