Finegold Alexander has a rich history of transformational design projects throughout the Commonwealth. This week we’re headed to the Berkshires, where Finegold Alexander Architects designed the multi-phased adaptive reuse of the historic General Cable Mill. The original mill complex was an abandoned ruin and consisted of 15 existing buildings, eight of those buildings, totaling 96,000SF, were chosen for renovation. Selective demolition of the remaining buildings allowed for a coherent arrival sequence, green spaces, and vehicular and pedestrian circulation to support the development. Finegold Alexander Architects has designed the interior space plan for all 61 housing units and amenity spaces. The project contains a mix of lofts and one- and two-bedroom apartments. The units feature exposed brick walls, high, wood-beamed ceilings, and energy efficient mechanical systems. The project includes extensive landscaping, and creates a public River Walk along the Green River. Boston.com featured this project in their Home of the Week series and shared how this industrial complex turned into a community home.
