PRESERVING AN ICON
The last building of its kind to remain standing, from a period of sawmills and rail-cars, the Southampton Factory roars with echoes of the past. Our goal is to remember the forgotten craftsmanship and revitalize the iconic building in our town of Southampton.
Originally constructed in 1901 as a furniture factory, it was essential to the town’s economy and development. As the property traded hands over the years, it evolved to each manufacturers’ needs, thus adding structural elements rich with history. One such outstanding adaptation that we wish to reincorporate is the railroad track that ran directly into the main floor.
REIMAGINING OUR LANDMARK
After discussions with members of the community, we will pay homage to this historical site by preserving its unique architectural features while creating new tailored spaces aimed at modern companies, ushering in a new era for the Southampton Factory.
The site will be reinvented in phases, beginning with the conversion of 20,000 vacant square feet on the third floor to a high-end brick and beam design for office space.
A LABOUR OF LOVE
For a building so connected to the community, the project will source as many local trades and artists as possible. We are putting together a team ready to invest their hearts into their crafts.
