Werthan Warehouse


SGS master planned and is leading the architectural design for the 14-acre Taylor Place Mixed-Use Development in historic Germantown Nashville. Phase I included a 4-story, 282-unit apartment building and the adaptive re-use of a 16,000 square feet bow-string truss warehouse for retail, offices, and restaurants. Phase II includes two multi-family buildings and the Werthan Warehouse. This 66,000 square-foot bow-truss warehouse is listed on the National Historic Register.

Originally a bag printing warehouse, the adaptive re-use design maintains the historic character that this industrial warehouse neighborhood is known for while still creating a modern Class A office space for future tenants. The expansive renovated curtain-wall windows make use of daylighting to create a bright and open space. The preservation of the original bow truss roof and addition of a soaring two-story atrium lobby produces a unique office experience for the interior as well as the exterior.
