Waterfire Community Arts Center


DBVW Architects

The goal of this project was to convert a century-old manufacturing building into a multi-use community arts center and the permanent home of a local non-profit, Waterfire.

The existing building conversion included the addition of two new floor levels to the north side of the buidling, a new roof deck on the south side of the building, and an overhead connection between the two spaces that allows for maximum open space in the exhibit hall below.

The project was successfully completed in 2017 and has since hosted several art installations, social events, and fundraising efforts for the community.
