About This Project

Modera Lofts

Jersey City, NJ

Our design concept was to embrace  the “old” industrial look/feel of the original building while implementing a “new/fresh” look of contemporary design. We maintained as many original elements as possible; items that were embedded in the brick were kept as long as they complied with code. MCRT involved CUBE 3 Studio early on in the project on how they would like to reuse/salvage the unique items that were from the original building – we photographed and documented the identified items and incorporated them into the design through custom Furniture, Artwork & architectural elements.

One of our favorite salvaged items is the custom conference room table – we took one of the salvaged original fire doors – inset this door in a wood surround (wood was used from the original flooring in the building) and placed glass on top to create a flat surface; the table base was also created from the wood flooring. We reused the original steel and beams to create custom benches and a feature wall in the community room. MCRT had a photographer come and photograph the building prior to the renovations.  We selected several images and had them printed on large scale canvas to create a gallery space on the first floor. Learn more about the amazing history of this renovation.


Modera Lofts was awarded the National Association of Home Builders Best in American Living™ Award for an adaptive reuse project.
