Feeling Lucky to be in Rhode Island.
This past few months have been wonderful. We have successfully relocated our studio to a historic mill building at 46 Dike St. in Providence Rhode Island. Built in 1880, the building was the former dye house for the Weybosset Mills and is on the national register of historic places. The 5,000 sq. ft, one-and-one-half-story, sixteen-by-two-bay rectangular building has windows on both sides that allow natural light into the building throughout the day. It will be an inspiring workspace for the new studio team.
Providence has a supportive and close-knit design community that is experiencing a renaissance. Mill buildings throughout town are being converted into working artists spaces. The Providence Department of Planning and Development has created the Dike Street Special Area Plan, where our building is located, to foster development, make public realm improvements, and encourage the adaptive reuse of the area’s endangered historic buildings.
