Sweeny&Co Architects Inc.
"This project celebrates a bold repurposing of existing brick buildings and creates a public realm out of a tall atrium that sits between them and the new office building that hovers above. Members of the public are drawn into this interior public realm that is generous in height and made additionally inviting with giant sculptural columns. The large atrium lobby retains and celebrates the shells of the historic industrial brick buildings. The old brick buildings successfully became assets for the new design rather than barriers to its execution. The result is an inviting urban landmark for pedestrians."
