Best Practice Architecture and Design as Architects

Best Practice was asked to develop a master plan for a multi-phase development of a 16,700sf site that was originally a gas station providing multiple options for artist studios. The first phase consists of building a new pre-engineered building, remodeling the old body shop garage and creating an outdoor sculpture garden. The site planning strategy was to create a composition of multiple buildings that would allow for autonomy for each tenant while feeling like they are a part of a community.

The existing buildings received a light make over consisting primarily of new windows and enhanced landscaping. The new building was constructed using an “off the shelf” industrial building system and then customized with unique windows, a mezzanine office with steel stair, and wood interior paneling. The space is used by a metal sculptor, who’s need for a tall volume of space accommodates both the creations and equipment.
