ELM Studio

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA

Purchased in 2004 and renovated and expanded in 2005, ELM’s Jacksonville office had sat vacant for years, previously a simple outbuilding for a local hardware store. The building’s renovation has since inspired growth and renewal of numerous other historic buildings in the district.

Inside the building, studios and workspaces are organized without walls, promoting an open collegial environment for the exchange of ideas, service to clients and a spirit of cooperation and teamwork.

The large north-facing garage doors have been replaced with high-performance glass, continuing to the second floor, providing all workspaces with abundant natural light, and a foreground view of the downtown Jacksonville skyline.

I strongly believe in ‘voting with your feet.’ Saying you believe something isn’t credible if your actions indicate the opposite. If we expressed our commitment to the urban realm and the importance of cities but worked somewhere in the suburbs, we’d have no credibility – and deservedly so.
— Steve Lovett, ELM founding partner
