Description

Built as a backlot tin shop in the early 1920s, this light industrial building was once tucked behind a residential two-flat. At some point the two-flat was demolished and the shop was expanded. It operated as an auto repair business from 1977 to 2015, when new owners stepped in to renovate the structure into a sublime private event space. The resulting product is almost unrecognizable: free-flowing indoor-outdoor space with high ceilings, exposed brick, concrete floors, modern lighting, and an immaculate courtyard with gardens and a mural. Set behind an enigmatic metal wall, The Lytle House is ideally suited to all types of private use, from weddings to workshops.
