URBANICA 100 CHELSEA
100 PEARL STREET, CHELSEA, MA
STATUS: COMPLETED

The project is a renovation of an existing warehouse building into twenty‐two artist lofts. There is also a ground floor art gallery and outdoor sculpture court.

A continuous metal plane was used to cut into the existing warehouse building. The metal was used throughout to express the creation of the art‐related programs such as the gallery, studios and sculpture court.

In contrast, the loft living spaces were left purposefully raw to encourage the artist residents to build out their own spaces. The development of this project has helped to revive a very depressed urban area of Chelsea.
