10 Sep 2013 Agricola Street: Amos Wood renovation
Over the last few years, Agricola Street in Halifax’s North End has been undergoing urban renewal. New buildings have cropped up housing businesses and people. Many of the old salt box homes on the street have been renovated, often maintaining the colourfull historic charm of this stretch of Halifax.
MRB is embarking on a project to renovate an old building, which in its current state is all but habitable. From stone-filled milk crates and concrete blocks holding down the tarped roof, to the dilapidated exterior finishes, the home is in desperate need of structural and aesthetic work.
The scope? to completely gut the interior of the structure and develop the space into a work live unit. The downstairs will host a showroom for Amos Wood – a specialty wood prodcuts business based in Block House, Nova Scotia. Upstairs will be developed into a modern flat.
We’ll keep you posted with project updates in the coming months.
