Located in Providence, Rhode Island, the American Woolens Dye house is a brick and timber structure that was originally built in 1880. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and it served as a textile mill before a thoughtful and extensive renovation transformed the property into a gorgeous live/work space.
The current owners, designers and ceramists Peter Souza and Jim Schatz, use the structure as a home, workspace, and factory for their modern ceramics studio J Schatz. The 5,120-square-foot space is zoned for both residential and commercial use, and it's centered around a bright and airy loft work area. The private living area holds a spacious, four-bedroom loft-like home with soaring ceilings, exposed brick, and classic factory windows.
