As one of the nation's only major cities with little to no industrial history, converted living spaces in the District can be hard to come by. However, there are a few exposed-brick gems, like the fabulous former stable in Logan Circle, featured in this week's Unique Spaces column at Urban Turf. Scott Sowers gives us a glimpse inside.
Sowers explains that the condo is part of Fennessy Lofts, a condo community inhabiting the "former home to W.H. Penland & Company, a horse stable that opened for business in 1894." While the horse stable has one through a few transitions over the years, many original features still exist including the brick work, vast garage doors, and window openings. However, when Hickok Cole Architects set up about turning the commercial space into 8 livable units in 2006, they made some desirable updates like the generous skylights flooding the unit with light.
