73: Adaptive Reuse | Arts & Letters Creative Co. World Headquarters

41m 20s |
In this episode, Cherise is joined by Danny MacNelly and Adam Ruffin, both Partners at ARCHITECTUREFIRM, a collaboration of architects and designers in Brooklyn, New York and Richmond, Virginia. They discuss the Arts & Letters Creative Co. World Headquarters in Richmond, Virginia.

The project scope consisted of an extensive renovation to a 20,000-square-foot brick complex, previously used by Lucky Strike Tobacco power plant. Two of the plant’s buildings were stitched together while conserving most of the existing walls, windows, skylights, tile, and concrete slabs.

What sets this project apart is its embodiment of the "keep it simple" philosophy. The team prioritized straightforward and functional solutions, avoiding over complication and focusing on the fundamental logic behind their designs.
