This is a subtle and complex project: providing an example of sustainable building through the adaptive reuse of a heritage building in a flood plain.


There’s a lot to retain. The building embodies the industrial sublime: Its massive, cathedral volume contains an assembly of low kilns, each with improbably long proportions and thousands upon thousands of bricks that testify to the craft of a century ago.


The Brick Works development repurposed an abandoned brick-making factory and quarry that shuttered in 1984 and added a LEED platinum certified building to create a vibrant new public space.

 

 

Renderings show the planned interior finishings and some of the future activities of the Brick Works Kiln Building. To extend the building’s use through all seasons, the design team enclosed the open portion 
of the building with a custom, retractable wall of high-performance glazing.


The long, narrow kilns are difficult to reuse, but LGA called for a few of them to serve as the Kiln Gallery.
