IN PROGRESS - Schmidt Artist’s Lofts

Saint Paul, Minnesota - Pen and Ink - 2017

Originally built as the Cave Brewery in 1855 - which once utilized a large cave located 30 feet below ground. The Schmidt Brewery ‘castle’ we know today was created during a major expansion in 1900. It was designed Chicago architect Bernard Barthel. After G. Heileman Brewing Company of LaCrosse, Wisconsin bought the brewery in 1972 it became the fourth-largest brewery in the United States by 1981. The last kegs that rolled out of the location in 2002 were filled with Grain Belt and Pig's Eye Pilsner beer. In 2012, the Dominium development team purchased the historic and iconic brewery which included the old Schmidt bottling house, the grain silos, and the brew house - ‘the castle’. Their development plan included include nearly 250 rental units - a majority reserved for artists. Due to the initial industrial and brewing uses in the various buildings, every one of the new live/work artist lofts created would have their own layout and personality, while allowing for numerous communal spaces and gathering areas throughout the complex.
