DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA
Precision BioSciences is a DNA research laboratory in Durham's downtown tobacco warehouse building district. The project completed the renovation of The Venable Center, an adaptive reuse project.
The masonry and heavy timber framed tobacco building was retrofitted to serve as a state of the art genomic research facility. Great emphasis was placed on leaving materials exposed and preserving the character of the existing building. Elements from the original building, such as the original warehouse doors, were preserved and combined with large interior glass walls to allow natural light to penetrate deep within the building.
