Before:

Years of neglect took its toll on
the interior of the former NBRC
building. Wet and dry rot created
structural issues and ruined the
timber floors. Many truss ends were
damaged beyond repair, and mold
covered much of the interior brick.
The damage was most severe inside
the old NBRC joinery workshop,
the space slated for the new
printmaking studio.

After:
The dilapidated joinery workshop is
now an airy, bright, and triple-height
printmaking studio. Ties to the
past remain in the original cast-iron
structure and the exposed timber
trusses and brick walls, complete with
old joist pockets. The space retains an
industrial feel, but one tempered with
warm brick and soaring windows that
let in an abundance of natural light.

Before:
Creating a community gathering
space was a must for the reanimated
building, but this would take some
doing on the part of the designers.
The building's preexisting courtyard
was little more than a patch of broken
concrete, rocks, and overgrown weeds
that backed up to the building's
gloomy, graffiti-covered posterior.

After:
An extension houses a cafe/bar that contains special touches
made from materials found inside the original building. Glazed
bricks that were uncovered in the basement make up the cafe's
service counter, and the design team repurposed the building's
interior timber doors into tabletops. The cafe's wall of windows
looks onto an inviting courtyard outfitted with cozy picnic
benches. When selecting materials for the extension itself, the
team was careful to evoke the structure's roots. "We used a
sharp, modern-white brick that references the historic
polychromatic brickwork of the NBRC building," O'Leary says.
