Weber + Thompson, the architect and interior designer for Bagley Lofts in Wallingford recently won the International Making Cities Livable award for this project. W+T was able to turn this challenging site into a successful loft project in Wallingford. The project was awarded for a few reasons:
- Strong intergration of the project’s commercial and residential components.
- Successful parking solution and finely detailed facades.
- The project design appropriately reflects the scale shift between adjacent structures.
The condo was completed in 2006 with 43 lofts units and 3,300 square feet of retail space. Homes at Bagley Lofts range in size from 740 to 1,400 square feet. There are three types of units: studios, or standard loft homes; one-bedrooms, which consist of a loft with a separate alcove for a bed or an office; and two-bedrooms, which have a separate bedroom in addition to the loft space. The interior features concrete floors, tall ceilings and warehouse-style windows. Folks appear to really like living there; currently, there are no resale units on the market.
