In a previous renovation, portions of the second-floor joists were lowered two feet below the lobby.  This difference in height provided an opportunity to raise the floor to its original height in strategic areas along Magazine. Where the floor remains low, joist pockets remain exposed as a reminder of the building’s changing history. Inspection revealed that years of termite and water damage had compromised large portions of the flooring, so it was replaced using Caribbean Heart Pine, most closely matching the original.
