Revitalizing an abandoned parcel on the edge of Granary District in Salt Lake City, The Marq was designed to attract individuals seeking beauty in the sublime in a revitalized, industrial community. The townhome project consists of 64, 1-3 bed townhomes, designed into 14 distinct buildings with a landmark clubhouse built from reclaimed shipping containers.
With a nod to the neighborhood’s industrial charm, the community clubhouse was constructed from creatively stacked shipping containers to establish both indoor and outdoor gathering areas. The resort-style amenity boasts a uniquely designed, year-round lounge pool, modern metal fire pit, hammock chairs, and an indoor bar/lounge area for residents to enjoy.
To reinforce the industrial-modern theme, 5-foot tall metal building numbers wrap the corners of each building. Additionally, the community logo was cut into custom, metal panels and installed as an overhead shade structure in the outdoor seating area. In the interior common areas, tables and shelving were custom built with walnut wood inlays.
The project is targeting the unique “makers” and “creators” in the Salt Lake area. The interiors of each unit were designed to be almost exclusively white, in order to create a blank, white canvas for these individuals to individualize their home with their own furnishings, art, and accessories.
