Year of Completion
Material and its Properties
This building is made locally, by the surrounding community. And because the building, both interior and exterior, is made of brick, the building material could be recycled and reused. The building itself was an abandoned warehouse, so the rehabing of an old structure also makes it enviornmentally responsible.
