The address of 824 Broadway started as the historic Crane Hawley Factory, then spent years as the Hamilton County Board of Elections headquarters. A recent comprehensive large-scale renovation created luxury loft-style apartments in the heart of downtown Cincinnati, and Stanton Millworks was hired to create several custom pieces for the shared amenity spaces. Featuring historic elements of the building was an overall goal of the project. In the rear lobby, which also contains a work station and a coffee counter, Stanton Millworks created a custom bench that incorporates original scroll stonework, provided by the owner. The maple wood veneer bench has an angled back rest and stained solid wood edges. It masks the business center, which includes laminate cabinets and a backsplash. The coffee station involved custom laminate cabinetry with cut-outs and maple dovetailed drawers. In the shared amenity space, the team created a stunning custom table. The table top is maple with a live edge and a clear coat on top, and was built around a concrete support column. The combination creates a surprising natural element in a largely industrial space. The kitchen area was also a Stanton Millworks creation, using high-quality laminate casework and a backsplash made from recycled galvanized metal and treated with a lacquer to prevent any further oxidation. Stanton also create custom casework for bathrooms and fitness studio cubbies, as well as decorative features in the elevator lobby.
