NEWBURGH, NY ADAPTIVE REUSE
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.
We bought the building in 2012, began extensive renovations, and moved our business up from Brooklyn a year later. Renovation, historic restoration, and build-out have continued, and our vision has been largely realized. We have a diverse, energetic group of tenants that includes artists, designers, photographers, musicians, and writers, many of whom have begun to talk, to work together, and to pollinate each other’s work. Our next projects in the building will be to open a showroom for our work, and a gallery.
