The Black Forest Inn Apartments

Restoring Historical Apartments.

The Black Forest Inn has been a Hamilton landmark since 1967. The apartments above the restaurant sat vacant for over 30 years. Buildcore Collective was asked to act as the General Contractor to fully renovate the upper floors into high-quality residential units.

It was important to maintain the character of the historical building, while also upgrading the space with modern finishes. The old drywall was demoed to expose the original brick and allow for the layout to be optimized. New windows, framing, and drywall were installed to divide the main rooms while filling the space with plenty of natural light. Our team took care of all of the finishes including installing flooring, trim, kitchen countertops, backsplash, and cabinetry. In total, 4 one-bedroom units and 2 two-bedroom units constructed. To align with the theme of the building, each unit has been named after a different Austrian composer. In the end, we are so proud to have had the opportunity to restore to these historical apartments.
