Design Concept

When the Paisley Mill was introduced, the structure's distinct blue siding and contrasting red trim were the first features I noticed. Additionally, I was drawn to the views offered by the forest behind the building. In my proposal, my overarching aim was to find solutions that allow for both existing conditions to shine.

An adaptive reuse solution for the mill was the goal of this project. I initially wanted to introduce a program that would be completely off-kilter such as a dark and grungy night club or some other kind of music venue, however I ultimately found that a general purpose event venue was better suited to the mill and my goals.
