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.

Behind the Scenes

Sneak behind the mysterious metal wall to see the adaptive reuse of an old auto body shop into a quirky, secluded event space.
