WOODMILL & community center // PROVIDENCE, RI

[a study of traditional woodworking and New England making]
This was an in depth analysis of an abandoned and defunct factory building in Providence, Rhode Island. Through extensive precedent research of both the practice and product of woodworking, I produced a plan for the adaptive re-use of a portion of the building to create a municipal wood mill.

PRECEDENTs

  • The Yusuhara Wooden Bridge Museum
  • The Log Cabin
  • The Adirondack Chair

These precedents all employ a simplicity of design and combination of elements in both concept and use, that are crucial in the restoration and renovation of architecture.
