(from Providence Preservation Society)
The WaterFire Arts Center located at 475 Valley Street—
Revitalization of a c. 1930 industrial building, originally part of the U.S. Rubber Co. complex, into the new headquarters of a dynamic local cultural arts organization. DBVW Architects and TRAC Builders worked with WaterFire Providence to create a performance, exhibition, and event venue in addition to administrative offices, production space, a gift shop, and storage. The jury appreciated the light-touch preservation approach that successfully retained the raw and industrial interior and historic patina.
