ClientThe Church

The Church is an adaptive reuse and restoration project that returns a once-shuttered religious structure back to the community as a vibrant creative center. The reimagined facility features an artists-in-residence program with on-site accommodations, flexible making spaces, exhibition galleries, resource library, and public garden. Interconnection between all levels is facilitated by a glass elevator and minimal steel and wood stairways. Portraits of notable East End artists painted by our client, Eric Fischl, are mounted on the windows, serving as a modern interpretation of stained glass.
