ADAPTIVE REUSE - KINGSTON, NY
Atlas was selected to help guide the design vision for the conversion of the Hutton Brickyards site from vacant industrial complex to open air market & event space. The project involved repurposing and restoring 4 of the 9 brickyard structures, as well as ongoing development of a master plan for the future use of the remaining buildings.
Enhancing the industrial architectural assets of the site, while maximizing the experience of its one-of-a-kind location, within arms length of the Hudson River, was a unique challenge - part restoration, part creative design thinking about how to quickly transform a group of structures, vacant and vandalized for decades, into a market for thousands. Atlas collaborated directly with the Hutton Brickyard property owner, the founders of Smorgasburg (who host an open-air market there every weekend during the summer), as well as a team of civil and structural engineers, architect and landscape architect, and a wide range of contractors and subcontractors, on the design of everything from a caretaker’s residence to logo design. Special thanks to Berg + Moss Architects for their involvement.
