Temple Art Lofts is a key catalyst project in the revitalization of downtown Vallejo. Domus was selected by the City of Vallejo to utilize federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) funds aimed at mitigating the effects of the foreclosure crisis. The historic preservation and adaptive reuse of the 1917 Masonic Temple and adjacent 1872 City Hall building transformed two dilapidated and foreclosed upon buildings into 29 affordable live/work lofts for artists. The project features artist studio space and a fully renovated performance hall. Ground floor retail space will include a café and office space for nonprofit arts organizations. Collectively, the project creates a true community of artists living and working in the heart of Vallejo’s Arts and Entertainment District.
