One branch of our studio involves restoration and adaptive re-use of old buildings for new uses. We do a huge amount of work in one of our favorite Hudson Valley cities, Newburgh. This one in particular has been fun so far and we anticipate it picking up steam in the Spring of 2019. The history of the place is a little murky but one of the myths is that the former tavern, in a previous location, was a drinking hole for some revolutionaries who later went on to do some big stuff. We are painstakingly documenting all of the building to get state (SHPO) and federal (NPS) grants and tax benefits.
