Brookland Artspace Lofts.

Applause: Artist's Haven

Applause: Artist's Haven MARCH/APRIL 2012

The brainchild of Artspace, a non-profit real estate developer, and the non-profit dance school Dance Place, the newly built Brookland Artspace Lofts is a mixed-use facility providing affordable live/work space for local artists. Designed by DC-based Hickok Cole Architects, the 78,000-square-foot building offers 41 housing units and underground parking along with a glass-walled studio that serves the adjacent Dance Place. A shared plaza creates a physical connection between the two facilities—which together form a ready-made arts district in Northeast DC. Brookland Artspace Lofts was sustainably built using Energy Star-rated lighting, water-conserving fixtures and low-VOC and recycled materials; its green roof was installed by DC Greenworks in a community effort.
