Photographer Jeff Lancaster bought this one-time auto garage in 2002 and paid careful attention to its historical details when he renovated it. Originally built in 1923 to service the ever-popular Ford Model T, this 3,200-square-foot historically designated landmark features an 18-foot open-beam barrel roof, drive-in access, full kitchen and lots of natural light. Lancaster maintained the integrity of the building, keeping the exposed-brick walls and oversized, handcrafted wood doors. The stained concrete floors add to the warm, old-fashioned ambiance of the studio. "I am most proud of being able to keep the historic atmosphere of the place," he says, "yet it still has a clean, contemporary feel." The studio also includes a private 4,000-square-foot yard for secure parking or shooting. 30th Street Garage is available for film, video and still productions; rental equipment is also available. A professional photographer himself, Lancaster understands the importance of flexibility and function in a location: "When clients come in, I like them to know they can create the space they need."
