Artspace’s mission is to create, foster, and preserve affordable space for artists, and arts organizations. The El Barrio’s Artspace (PS109) project is the adaptive reuse of the historic New York City public school building into 90 loft units, and community spaces. The complete interior renovation converted former classroom spaces into apartment units, first floor retail and gallery space. Color was used to enliven the corridors and assist in wayfinding. Where ever possible the original fabric of the building was retained.
Roche & Company teamed with the project architects and El Barrio Operation Fightback for interior design and finish material selection.
