BuildingHistory.png

We built an identity on a century of history.

 

From its beginnings in 1917 as a Nabisco warehouse, 11 West Huling was intended to do more than simply get the job done. Its original designers looked beyond mere function to do something revolutionary: build a workspace that made the people within it feel proud and appreciated. Over the course of a century, it housed a boat manufacturer, a liquor distributor, a photography studio, and an architecture firm.

A building of such pleasing architectural quality and dignity as would not only be a source of pride to its directors, stockholders and employees, but would, in a measure, express to the public the purpose and ideals of the Company.
— W.F. Wilmoth, 1912

LIVESTOCK TO LIVING SPACE

 

The Residence at 11 W. Huling was built as a carriage house and stable and was converted to an AirBnB 100 years later to meet the needs of the next century. We worked with The Residence’s hosts to define and create a unique and unforgettable hospitality experience that reflects the history of this space and our city, as well as their progress and penchant for innovation. In 2019, The Residence’s hosts were named Superhosts by AirBnb, which recognize the best in hospitality.
