Bourne Again: Sustainability Gets Sly in a Re-purposed Textile Mill
I came across this interesting project today on the magazine, GreenSource's website and thought it was very clever. The conversion of an old textile mill from 1881 in Tiverton, Rhode Island into mixed-income rental housing. Not only was sustainability a key factor in the design (LEED Silver certified) but the design firm, The Architectural Team, also fought hard to respect the envelope of the 120 year old building in order for the project to receive tax credits from the state's historic preservation office and the National Park Service. I love the juxtaposition of the old stone exterior with the contemporary, sleek interiors.
