 Case Studies

CHEROKEE STUDIOS Case Study:

The Lofts @ Cherokee Studios is as unique as its historic namesake sound studio that was dubbed “the best sound studio in America” by  Beatles’ producer, George Martin. The sound studio closed in 2007 to make way to be transformed and today features 12 live/work lofts and 3 commercial condominiums. In its studio heyday it churned out over 300 gold and platinum records. Today, the Lofts@Cherokee Studios is the first LEED Platinum certified mixed-use development and was also a top ten winner of a 2011 AIA/COTE award. VIEW FULL CASE STUDY
