Des Moines, Iowa

This rare-surviving early twentieth-century industrial rug works factory complex has been transformed into a highly desirable mixed-use building. Originally constructed over time between 1910 and 1928, and run by accomplished 20th century businesswoman, Emma Owens Ferrington, the complex has remained largely untouched until now. A series of distinctive historic spaces combined with a variety of historic finishes, including the wood storefront, stone entranceway, wood floor, and pressed metal ceilings, makes for a truly unique development. This one-of-a-kind complex shines as an anchor for the northern edge of Downtown Des Moines with contemporary interiors, modern exterior spaces, and repaired historic architectural character.
