MICA VILLAGE

CLIENT: MICA VILLAGE PARTNERS, LLC
LOCATION: ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA
PROJECT TYPE: RENOVATION/ RE-USE
SIZE: 10 UNITS

The Lofts at Mica Village is a new residential development located next to Biltmore Village in downtown Asheville, North Carolina. The building, formerly known as Asheville Schoonmaker Mica Co., was originally a mica processing facility from the early 1900's and now provides the perfect setting for historic loft-style living. Mica Village consists of 10 loft apartments constructed in the spirit of New Urbanism, utilizing the best principles of Green Building, and features include exposed original brick and hemlock beams, original wood floors, covered lower-level parking, and a large park-like greenway.

In our effort to reduce building costs and waste, over 60% of the building materials we used in this project were reclaimed from the original Mica Plant! The colorful glass used to infuse the lobby terrazzo floor and loft countertops came from the broken upstairs windows. The artsy metal used to support the kitchen bar countertops are the original plumbing pipes from the factory and were beautifully welded by Asheville's Willow. All the wood we used was either reclaimed from nearby sites or purchased from locally owned Sunrise Sawmill.
