Located in the former Titus Gallery space the project required a change of occupancy with completely new interior layout, restrooms and second floor dining. STREAM focused on the layout, code analysis and exterior facade design. The interior design was a collaboration with Spectrum Design Group out of Rochester, NY.

409 College Ave.

Ithaca, NY

The 409 College Ave. project is the creation of a dynamic new space for the offices of Student Agencies, Inc., their affiliated not-for-profit, and their student-run companies. This space will house the E-Hub, a business incubator geared to Cornell students. STREAM Collaborative's design retains the current building uses while renovating the lobby, facade, 2nd, and 3rd stories. Facilities will include open office space with areas of both fixed and movable furniture, meeting rooms of various sizes, business support spaces for printing and communication, lounge spaces for casual collaboration, and a multipurpose space for gatherings, lectures and other educational and networking events. In considering the façade re-design, a balance had to be struck between creating more openness while respecting the positive attributes of the existing façade.

STREAM Collaborative is working with Dr. Marne O’Shea on an adaptive reuse proposal to repurpose the Old Tompkins County Library into a dynamic center of lifelong health and community resources for all ages including much needed housing. The building’s location within walking distance of numerous amenities makes it an ideal location for mixed-use development. The proposal includes a complete renovation and deep energy retrofit with an entirely new building envelope. If the proposal is selected by the County, the building will accommodate two floors of community/commercial spaces, and three floors of market rate housing.

Ithaca, NY

STREAM Collaborative is working with the Finger Lakes ReUse Center to develop a new main headquarters in the City of Ithaca. Their new building’s life history is most recently as an education center and originally constructed as one of the first grocery stores in the area. The current project involves the removal of several partition walls to open up the main retail floor and to create a much improved facility for receiving and processing donated building materials and household goods. The new facility provides the ReUse Center with classroom space for workforce training and serves as the new home for the Tompkins County Sustainability Center. The combined programming of these organizations effectively complements the mission of re-use as a primary tenet of sustainability in the Finger Lakes.
