Located in downtown Memphis, Wagner Place is one of Carlton Edwards largest projects. Located in a historic building once used as a warehouse this 12,000 square foot residential conversion was designed to balance the historical with the modern. The living spaces and roof structure were designed to allow for a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor; opening towards views over the Mississippi River and the Memphis skyline. A primary ambition of the project was to connect the different spaces in a meaningful way; from the custom designed lower level wine room, to the entry foyer, to the two-story library and mezzanine. These elements are arranged around a bright white central atrium and staircase, an ideal backdrop to the client’s evolving art collection.
