The Jefferson Lofts is a project striving to explore the concept of lofted spaces by attempting to create a large variety of unit types to accommodate people of different income rates. The building creates a total of nine different unit types. As a code workaround typical of the Pinkzones in Lean Urbanism, the building incorporates double height units and corridors every other floor to achieve a 7-story building with fire-proof construction only on the ground floor. Though various studies the building includes a total of 39 units ranging from typical lofts to three bedroom apartments where some include balcony spaces and three different communal areas that are distributed throughout the building. Some of these amenity spaces include a community gym, workspace and a rooftop space for the resident to enjoy the views of downtown Detroit and the surrounding area. The construction type inspired the materiality of the wood facade and screening element, where the construction type begins manifesting itself onto the façade.
