Joseph and Anni Albers Foundation - "Trunk"

HSA Architects acted as both the Architect of Record and Construction Manager for this 5,000SF facility that was built to house the Art Furniture Collection of the Albers Foundation in Bethany, CT. Working in collaboration with architectural graduate Eoghan Hoare of Ireland, who provided the design concept, it was our charge to see that the building was properly structured and detailed to be buildable and function properly. Additionally, that it could be accomplished within the available $550,000 budget.


The new facade treatment of stone veneer and stained cedar, along with a simulated terracotta slate roof, gave this previously vinyl sided building more the look of Tuscany.

Victorian House

This adaptive reuse of a residence in a major commercial zone - that additionally took advantage of favorable ITC's - ended up with just under 8,000SF of rentable area while maintaining much of the buildings unique character.

Aerodyne Alloys

This project was an interior fit-out of about 7,500SF of space tucked inside of a 75,000 SF metal industrial building. A major challenge was to bring natural light into the primary staff work area that had to be placed well to the interior. Many details were developed to showcase the company's presence in the specialty metals market.

Park Central Tavern

The owner wanted to do a "gut rehab" of a prior restaurant and create three different environments - a bar, a wine room with quite dining and a room to support large groups or act as overflow dining. The new trellised entrance way entrance way and vestibule allowed clientelle direct access from the parking area into the restaurant, elminating what had been an ongoing problem.

Mellon House

Adaptive reuse. New Haven, CT.

CT Center for Orthopedic Medicine

This Medical Office fit out involved an initial suite of office along with a development plan for adjacent space for a possible "seamless" future expansion plus a separate space for a Physical Therapy component elsewhere in the building.

Tuxis Square

Though this project only got as far as through the Zoning Approval processed it was a great example of how to best use the available site - while creating a building with a maximum of Useable/Rentable Area for the Developer.
