The current and contentious plan for the redevelopment of the Domino Sugar Factory is to transform the Williamsburg warehouse into hulking residential towers. However, a group of activist North Brooklyn residents is opposed to SHoP Architects and Two Trees' fancy designs, so they asked Holm Architecture Office (HAO) to draw up an alternative plan instead.


The counterproposal, dubbed the Domino Culture Factory, adaptively reuses the long-abandoned industrial buildings. Instead of demolishing existing structures to put in luxury apartments, office space and more, HAO seeks to revamp the current site—keeping it within the same scale as the rest of the neighborhood—into a public/private cultural destination. Under their vision, it would include affordable housing, performance space, art galleries, education centers, public parks, a hotel and a green-energy technology center.
