What We DoWhat we've done

South Side Traveler’s Rest

Adaptive reuse of the historic 7,400 square foot A.M. Byers Wrought Iron Pipe Company headquarters to accommodate the South Side Traveler’s Rest, a hostel, with nine sleeping rooms. We highlighted the building’s wood paneling, doors and ceiling while making the building accessible. We also assisted the owners in a year-long process to receive approvals from the Allegheny County Health Department, which did not recognize hostels as a standard use. In addition, we went through a building permit appeal process which identified cost-saving solutions to bring this building from 1886 up to today’s life-safety standards.
