Distinguishing PZ Workspace from other flex office centers is its award-winning, industrial modern-inspired design.

 

PZ Workspace makes its home in the CANVAS Building at Plant Zero, a two-story, brick structure constructed for industrial use in 1915 for the Crawford Manufacturing Company and later occupied by the Richmond Paperboard Corporation. Fountainhead Properties undertook its transformation into work and living spaces in 2005 and it is managed by CoreRVA. The architect for this historic rehabilitation project was Chris Fultz of Richmond, Virginia-based Fultz Architects.


Modern Cubes, Historic Trusses

Simultaneously an exercise in historic preservation and interior design, this modernist interior renovation was designed as a modular kit of parts that would clearly differentiate between old and new. A new mezzanine was carefully inserted within the large wooden roof trusses. The mezzanine-level offices took the form of glassy cubes (“pods”), while circulation, in the form of a catwalk, was threaded through the timber structure. The “pods” were designed and fabricated as a modular kit of parts that were manufactured off-site. Program functions at the upper and lower level were distributed around the perimeter of the space in order to create a central open room or interior courtyard that is filled with natural light provided by two existing skylights. The use of modern materials, detailing, and light fixtures further emphasizes a clear differentiation but complimentary relationship between new and old.
