ADAPTIVE REUSE - NEWBURGH, NY
Atlas Studios in Newburgh, NY is an historic industrial building converted into workshops & studios for artists, makers, entrepreneurs, and creative professionals seeking space in a dynamic environment. Dating to 1920, the building belongs to an era when Newburgh was a thriving industrial center with, among other things, large-scale textile manufacturing. It was built by a company that made worsted yarn, and was successively used for clothing and handbag manufacturing, carpet warehousing/distribution, and finally mattress manufacturing.
Atlas bought the building in 2012, began extensive renovations, and moved the business up from Brooklyn a year later. Renovation, historic restoration, and build-out have continued, and our vision has been largely realized. In addition to our diverse, energetic group of tenants, our gallery space hosts art shows, concerts, literary and film events.
