This place is amazing…

January 22, 2011

So, for work today, I took a couple bits of jewelry downtown to be shot for Venue Magazine, which in itself is super cool, but the space they were working in… that’s another story.

Unfortunately, all these pictures were taken with my blackberry, so they’re not the highest quality.

It’s an old school, with all the walls torn out and on the second, third and fourth floors, the original dormitory bathrooms are in tact!

But imagine apartments. This is the ground floor:

Can’t you just imagine a bedroom in that little tree house perch?

The door into the second floor space. Its divided into two sections on the three upper floors, one larger with three walls of windows and the smaller with gorgeous huge brick walls and two walls of windows.

Beautiful exposed beams, duct work and concrete floors. Amazing light.

Talk about industrial chic. Shower in the girls’ dormitory.

I swooned at the stairwell. Look at that light! And that industrial pipe railing!

The view from the third floor. I love Italianate Cincinnati architecture.

Area on the other side of the floor from the entry on the first floor. Its already partitioned off and would be an a-maz-ing kitchen.

It would be so easy to throw up two bys and drywall and make this into a beautiful two or three bedroom apartment. The picture doesn’t give good scale, but the space is probably a hundred feet by eighty.

Its currently owned by the Art Institute, but if anyone is willing to give me a million-five in capital, I can make some (excuse me) fucking amazing living spaces out of this building.

Le sigh.

    Wait, the Art Institute or the Art Academy? I just graduated from the Art Institute (where I also worked at the time) and never heard anything about another building. Nice as it would’ve been, since their space suuuuuuucked.
