Client: Charlotte housing authority
Story: IN 2008, FMK WAS SELECTED THROUGH A PUBLIC PROPOSAL TO DESIGN THE NEW CHARLOTTE HOUSING AUTHORITY CORPORATE OFFICES.
Part of the process involved considering the option of purchasing and renovating an existing building along the very busy Independence Boulevard Corridor. This study contemplated "re-skinning" the building with a new storefront behind a suspended wood sunscreen panel and over-sized signage suitable for the adjacent high speed traffic. Eventually, CHA decided to shelve this project.
