Location: Batawa, Canada
Client: Batawa Development Corporation
The adaptive reuse of Bata’s former shoe factory in the Town of Batawa is the centrepiece of a vision to transform the former industrial town into a new model for rural sustainable development. Residential apartments, retail and community uses occupy the original structure, now enhanced with large windows, new balconies and welcoming lobby, reestablishing what was once the centre of Batawa as a destination.
