Working collaboratively with the project’s architect, owners, and tenant (respectively, GBBN Architects, Almono LP, and OneValley), Monmade integrated a variety of creative artisan and sustainable products into the Roundhouse at Hazelwood Green. Together with GBBN and our artisan producers, Monmade explored details of the location, reflected the history of the building, and created distinctive moments throughout the interior and exterior spaces through product solutions.
The Roundhouse was originally built by the Monongahela Connecting Railroad circa 1887 and was formerly owned by Jones & Laughlin Steel and later LTV Steel Company. Today, following its renovation the Roundhouse serves as an innovation center for the global entrepreneurship platform, OneValley. Additionally, the Roundhouse is a component of Almono LP’s broader redevelopment of Hazelwood Green, which is working toward a LEED for Neighborhood Development Platinum certification (for which, the Roundhouse requires LEED Gold certification).

The historic context, modern accommodations, and sustainability goals for the project served as inspiration for many of the products. The final solutions blended historical and modern design details, including exterior benches and trashcans, exterior and interior wayfinding signage, movable steel screen walls, glass and ceramic pendant lighting, ceramic and screen-printed tile, thematic wallcoverings, the large wood kitchen island, as well as interior and exterior bike racks.
