Corinth, Mississippi, is a small town in the rural South. Barry’s client had been raised here and was committed to revitalizing his hometown. He asked Barry to help him convert one of the vacant brick buildings downtown into an urban loft, a getaway for weekends and family retreats. Built in the 1860s, the space was in poor condition, but the location overlooking Main Street was ideal, and once the arched double-hung windows were uncovered, light poured inside. Barry knew that it was important to remain true to the building’s integrity, and thus structural elements were celebrated as the backbone of the restoration.
