The design team was selected by the City of Emeryville to rejuvenate a currently vacant and deteriorating property formerly known as the United Stamping Company building, which is a designated “Significant Structure” per the Emeryville Planning Regulations. The property includes a one-story, 30,000 square foot brick industrial building located directly adjacent to the Emeryville City Hall and Civic Center.

 

The community-centric program accommodates a dedicated space for the annual Emeryville Celebration of the Arts, a fully managed gallery space for artists and a self-catered flexible-use space suitable for performing arts and other community events. The project includes:

  • Rehabilitation of the deteriorated building shell & structure (including replacement of the roof and portion of exterior masonry)

  • Selective demolition

  • Interior improvements & additions to accommodate new uses including a multi-purpose gallery, forum (theatre and performing arts venue), café, artist's work-studios, co-working spaces, classrooms, offices, conference rooms & all-gender restrooms

  • Site improvements and landscaping of the immediate site

  • Replacement of utilities and infrastructure as needed
