Bayley Street Lofts
Pawtucket, Rhode Island
truth box developed a model approach to the paradoxical problem of redeveloping an energy-efficient mill building. The aesthetics of the bricks, heavy timbers and large windows are ideal for this 25 unit artists' live/work complex, but they clash with today's high energy costs. A solution was found that celebrated the dramatic construction without a dramatic energy bill. However, historic preservation and green design are sometimes in opposition to one another; compromises had to be made. (Bayley Street Lofts is a National Historic Register site.)
