Design Styles Architecture
Headquarters

Location:
Ybor City, FL

Project Owner/Architect:
Design Styles Architecture

Rating:
LEED for New Construction and Major Renovations Gold

The Design Styles Architecture Office renovation followed Historic Preservation standards to revitalize a neglected building in the historic Ybor neighborhood. The 5,000 square foot building once housed a grocery store for the thriving neighborhood, but had recently been abandoned, falling into disrepair and infested with termites. The Owner saw the value in saving the building, and relocating their headquarters near the Tampa downtown business district.

REAL Building Consultants acted as the sustainability consultant to the owner and project team throughout the design and construction process, facilitating LEED certification, performing Energy Analysis and serving as the Commissioning Agent (CxA).
