Reinvigorating the west end of Newport’s Historic Bayfront, Basics Market will provide local small batch cheese production, artisanal grocery options, and hand made ice cream. The building uses sweeping open volumes to connect the public to the cheesemaking process. These volumes facilitate the use of passive sustainability strategies such as daylighting, natural ventilation, and sun shading. The building’s signage is integrated into its structure creating a sleek, streamlined silhouette. It uses large covered patios and sidewalk awnings to connect the market to the dynamic pedestrian landscape outside and enable the walkable culture of the Bayfront to thrive year round.
