Challenge and Charm of Creating The Works

Challenge and Charm of Creating The Works

Reworking The Works required careful consideration, using what it was to inform what it could be. This former “upper and lower rail spur” presented “about a mile” of linear, narrow, separated structures that needed to come together in a fluid, multiuse space. Leveraging limitations, we created a cohesive place of intimate spaces using “materiality that recalls the history of the site.” Embracing the challenge and charm of what came before, those elements worked together to bring people together. Now with spaces for entertainment, offices, food and fashion retail, recreation, and more, life at the railyard offers literally “the Works.”
