Bob Shervin, the owner of a gas station and tire store adjacent to an unsightly metal structure in Jackson, Wyoming, wanted to create an environmentally-friendly, aesthetically-pleasing building that also provided some much-needed affordable housing for his community. He approached Ward + Blake Architects with the additional challenge of maximizing the amount of leasable square footage on the property – all within the confines of a $140 per square foot budget. The resulting eco-building has a lovely roof garden at the second floor that allows apartment dwellers to enjoy the wonderful scenic views of the mountains beyond.
