Latest Artspace Rendering Offers Refined Look, Nighttime View

A new conceptual image of the future Artspace artist lofts is giving us a look at what the building may look like at night. The image was recently posted by architect William Helm on Facebook.

The new rendering also shows some slight differences from concept images that debuted in late 2012. Different sections of the facade are now distinguished by depth and color, with some sections in gray and others in subdued yellow. Concrete blocks that previously made up the southern staircase tower have been replaced by what looks like smooth concrete, and the Artspace sign is no longer seen. Awnings along the ground floor have been broken up into different sections and heights. And the arrangement of windows has also slightly changed.

When completed, the building will feature up to 70 live/work units for artists, as well as ground level gallery space and will be located along Oregon Street between Missouri and Wyoming Avenues, adjacent to the Doubletree Hotel. According to the In*Situ website, the architect of record is ASA Architects in collaboration with William Helm. The project is headed by the El Paso Community Foundation.
