2017 and our new Design Studio opens
Come visit us at our new 3,000 sq. ft. design studio, located in the iconic Icehouse in Old Town Orange. Originally built in 1930 as a structure to manufacture ice, the building was designed as a cold storage machine to refrigerate citrus fruit, then process the fruit onto the adjacent railroad for distribution.
The Ice house is a transformation into a mixed-use facility consisting of offices, artist studios, and residential loft space. It weaves together historic preservation, adaptive reuse, and environmental responsibility, since the entire building, and many original components, have been recycled. The Ice House demonstrates an integration of art and architecture, an emergence of artistic culture and commerce. The machine for cooling is now a machine for living, with new energy through sustainable design.
