Pascudeco Center

How can a symbol of a region's industrial past also act as a beacon of its vibrant future?

Design Development

The design for the Pasudeco Center transforms an iconic turn-of-the-century sugar mill into a vibrant multi-purpose community hub featuring public art installations, retail spaces, offices, and a theater.

The design re-uses the original building’s A-frame structure, wrapping portions in new metal surfaces to create distinct spaces. A covered walkway connecting these spaces is supported by yellow steel columns, referencing the mill’s original colored columns.
