The Hooper, designed by Craine Architecture, further defines the intersection of 26th and Welton Streets, architecturally and programmatically complimenting the recently completed Lydian across the street. The massing and materiality of the building demonstrates a sensitivity to the neighborhood context, both new and old, while the details are appropriately crafted to distinguish the building with a personality of its own. Heavy on the efficiency studios, the residential offering at The Hooper will contribute to a broad range of contemporary home types in the neighborhood. Building on the success of the Craft co-work office space at The Lydian, The Hooper will provide a mix of flexible collaborative workspace as well as traditional office configurations. The ground floor will be home to the distinctive community-centric Busboys and Poets, a gathering space intended (in the words of the establishment’s founder) “…to take a deliberate pause and feed your mind, body and soul…” There could not be a better descriptor for this building and the spaces within.
