dc.description.abstract This report documents my resolution to the remnants of the C. L. Centlivre Brewery Company in Fort Wayne, IN. I have tried to adaptively reuse it in a manner which would make references to the buildings history and yet be relevant to the present. I wanted to foster a strong social community and a quality living environment.The building is located 1 mile north of downtown on Spy Run Avenue, a major one way street running north. The site consists of 1.46 acres bounded by Spy Run and the St Joseph River. The building contains approximately 35,100 square feet divided among seven floors. The project introduces 20 residential units and a private penthouse into the structure.The building is composed of strong elements: its form, two definite languages, a dominant corridor. I worked with these elements to arrive at my final solution. I emphasized the two languages while maintaining much of the original form. The corridor became the entrance, a public space. The corridor is an organizer for the site and the building. Because Spy Run is heavily traveled, public to private zoning was important for the site. I also used it within the building.Because of the complexity of this structure, documentation became a very involved process. However as I delved further into the building, I found that it would lead me to make certain decisions. Working with an existing structure has been challenging, occasionally frustrating, but in the end proven to be rewarding.The final solution has eleven floor plans; some of which are full, some are partial. Documentation of the solution also includes elevations, sections, and a site model.This project marks the transition from my academic education to a working education. As such it is the culmination of my studies here in the College of Architecture and Planning.
