The Livery

Dating to the late 1800s, this petite brick building in the heart of downtown Chaska was originally built as a horse stable. As years passed and times changed, it received indoor plumbing and was repurposed as a three-unit office building. The offices had become tired and the building was in need of a complete renovation. The owners developed a detailed vision for the building with U+B Architecture and Design. Because the building is on the historic registry, the Chaska Historical Society provided input and special attention was paid to preserving the character of the ‘Chaska’ brick exterior. The four brick walls and their stone foundation are all that remain of the original structure. 

The historic feel of the exterior belies the contemporary interior. While incorporating a color palette, textures, and materials that hint at its rustic past, the clean lines, metal, and glass of the building’s new interior are well suited to today’s demand for modern amenities. The building boasts hydronic in-floor radiant heat throughout that allows the polished concrete to keep bare feet warm and comfortable on cold days. The livery renovation demanded tremendous attention to detail and the Professio team rose to the challenge.
