Artspace Norwich
Client: ArtSpace Connecticut, LLC
Completion Date: 2001
Following the success of ArtSpace Hartford, TSKP STUDIO developed plans for a similar project in Norwich. This adaptive reuse project reclaimed an underutilized old mill building within walking distance of City Hall, creating 58 new residential units. The open floors and large window openings of the existing wood structure are well-suited for reuse as artists' living and working studios ranging in size from 850 to 1,400 sq. ft. Portions of the existing four-story, 18,000 sq. ft. building were demolished, making way for efficient new construction and the remaining building was gutted and completely renovated. The ground floor features a 3,000 sq. ft. gallery for exhibiting and functions. The gallery and large garden area at the building entry contribute to the revitalization of the neighborhood.
