Adaptive Reuse of the Historic Witherill Building: Creating Spaces for the 21st Century

My master's thesis project

The adaptive reuse of the historic Witherill building in downtown Syracuse, New York rejuvenates the neighborhood and contributes to social and economic revitalization as well.  By renovating the existing building while maintaining its historic integrity, the structure is given a new purpose while illustrating forward thinking design. 

The mixed-use building houses an urban eco-village, called Woodlands at the Witherill, comprised of communal living spaces and private living spaces.  In addition, an organic restaurant called White Birches and two retail spaces will be accessible to the public and provide interest at street level.  All of these interior spaces, created for the 21st century, offer a unique experience for all building users.

 

Shown below in order are:
