“Polycarbonate Panels fill Housatonic Artist Studio with Natural Daylight”
Once a mill village, Housatonic, MA is now home to a thriving artist community. At present, there are three commercial galleries and over thirty artist studios, many located in the Housatonic Mill Revitalization Overlay District.
Designed by AF Architecture, Studio One is one of many beautifully renovated historic buildings in the Revitalization District. Originally constructed in the 1890’s, this former textile mill was recently converted into a single family residence with an amazing studio space.
Working with EXTECH/Exterior Technologies, Inc. and AmeriLux International, the architectural design firm chose a 40mm LEXAN™ THERMOCLICK™ polycarbonate sheet system as their daylighting solution for this renovation project. With a specially designed tongue and groove connection, LEXAN™ THERMOCLICK™ installs quickly, offers very high thermal insulation, and is available in a wide range of colors and aesthetic effects.
