Purpose built for playing, making, and collaboration of all types.

SINBIN is a creative house balancing both natural and built environments. At it’s core, the space inspires action and activity. It is purpose built for playing, making, and collaboration of all types.

Inspired by Gordon Matta Clark’s iconic “Building Cuts,” two existing warehouses (totaling 9500sf), were cut into and modified. Peeling back the roof of one and slicing into the other, the warehouses are remixed, repurposed and fused with the new building’s geometric pinwheel framework creating a space that seamlessly blends the old and new.

From performance hall, to indoor skate park, to an outdoor fire pit, these unique zones all inspire meaningful communication and thoughtful sharing of ideas. This type of open creative process is at the heart of why SINBIN was built.
