St. Ann’s Warehouse – SOLD OUT
Tour Time: 1:00pm
45 Water Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201
On a prominent DUMBO corner along the Brooklyn Bridge Park waterfront, St. Ann’s Warehouse built its new home in the historic 1860 Tobacco Warehouse. Situated on the edge of Brooklyn Bridge Park the theatre has breathtaking views of the Brooklyn Bridge and adds a cultural destination to the Park’s outdoor amenities. The design within this ruin-like brick building, celebrates unexpected materials. A discrete steel volume is inserted within the walls allowing the historic arched doors and windows to remain functional and open to the Park. Glass bricks extend the structure above its existing height recalling the brick of a taller structure that originally occupied the site and allowing natural light to flood the interior spaces.
The program of lobby, 700-seat theatre, offices, event space and community amenities open onto an intimate public garden, within the footprint of the original warehouse building. The layout of the hall allows flexibility. The main theatre can be configured for grand theatrical productions or intimate classical concerts. Flexible spaces surrounding the main theatre can host events and classes of all sizes. On a second level, St. Ann’s offices overlook the theatre and a network of catwalks enable rapid restaging and use of the entire building for performances.
