Sunrise at the Shawhan

This project represents an adaptive reuse of a turn of the century hotel into an elegant Assisted Living Home. The structure, located in Tiffin, Ohio, was once a hub of activity in this rural county seat community, but had fallen into serious disrepair and was in jeopardy of being demolished. Approximately twelve years prior to the start of the restoration construction, a fire destroyed the roof structure and portions of the upper floors. Temporary repairs to the roof soon failed leaving the structure exposed to the elements while preservationists worked to find a new use for the rapidly deteriorating hotel.
