Bourne Mill Apartments

Tiverton, RI

The LEED Silver Certified Bourne Mill Apartments are the historic adaptive reuse of eight former mill buildings, each conversion required unique design solutions resulting in a variety of unit types to include deep loft style units with innovative raised sleeping areas; multi-level units built within the existing masonry shell of former boiler rooms, and dual exterior exposure units created by removing the roof on a one-story building to carve out a new interior courtyard. Many historic elements of the mill have also been maintained including the clock tower and deep roof overhangs on the main building.
