Greenhouse Loft is located in a platinum LEED certified building. Our building was originally constructed in 1913 and housed both a knitting mill as well as an architecturally-inspired elegant lamp manufacturer over the years. Today, the building has been transformed into a state-of-the-art LEED Platinum epicenter for green commerce that gives back to the community and promotes environmental sustainability. Enriched by the building history and tenants who came before us, Greenhouse Loft is humbled to be a part of this incredible building's community and mission.
The loft features beautiful lighting design - hanging lamps designed by George Nelson suspended from the ceiling, Edison Bulb pendants above the center island, and twinkle lights around the ceiling collectively make the room is festive and bright. Natural cream and white hues on the walls, curtains, and drapes make the space a great blank canvas for any event, while white beams showcase unique structural elements of the space. Our loft is an open space and our team of experienced professionals works with each client to build a custom floor plan tailored to their individual needs.
