“PAINTBRUSH FACTORY” CULTURAL CENTER

exterior rehabilitation

A study of how the contemporary art center in the ex-Paintbrush Factory could develop it’s exterior image to the city. After many ideas we’ve discovered that most of them could be put in three distinct categories. The first was the nostalgic one with an approach to the initial industrial image, the second was getting over the poor industrial design of the factory by painting completely the building, while the third added an extra layer of contemporary design to it.

Unfortunately the project stopped at this phase with further developments unknown.
