The residency is located in downtown Miami, in a former warehouse built in 1924. The residency is made up of six live/work studios (each measuring approximately 600 square feet) and one studio apartment. The space is designed to be clean, with freedom of movement for the artist, plenty of light, power and collaboration between residents. Each studio has a polished concrete floor and large warehouse window. The artists share a communal kitchen, dining, and lounging area. On the floor below the residency are the LegalArt offices, legal counseling space, gallery, research library, and event space. LegalArt’s new live/work residency program will create a ‘one stop shop’ for assistance, professional education, live/work space and collaborative interactions. Using an existing building in the heart of the downtown arts and entertainment district ensures that artists will be close to other arts organizations, museums, and other cultural partners. Revitalizing an existing, unused building in the heart of downtown, with the space redesigned by artist Daniel Arsham and architect Alex Mustonen, partners at Snarkitecture, the space will not only breathe life into a blighted area but provide a beautiful place for artists to work and live.
