Architect: Practice for Architecture and Urbanism (PAU)
PAU is designing the adaptive-reuse of the Domino Sugar Refinery, an industrial landmark that will again become the nerve center of Brooklyn’s waterfront. Rather than navigating misaligned floors across the combined masonry shell, PAU tried a different approach: nesting a new building into the existing envelope to create a state-of-the-art workspace within an idiosyncratic urban artifact. The project is unique to post-industrial Williamsburg, offering a singular experience for inhabitants and the larger community alike.
