Nationally Recognized, Locally Inspired.

So, who are the folks designing the Ware?

And breathing new life into Transfer Co? Look no further than the acclaimed and local firm Clearscapes Architecture + Art. Founded in 1981, Clearscapes consists of both architects and artists alike, all dedicated to the idea that successful architecture should be a “functional piece of art that serves to engage and inspire its users and their community.”

Unlike other architecture firms, Clearscapes isn’t just about designing buildings, and the nearly 50 awards they’ve won over the past 32 years brings that to bear. Because artists are principles at their firm and foundational to the final product, Clearscapes bring a unique level of artistry and detail to their work. With over 100 art installations all over the U.S., their commitment to art speaks for itself. Next time you're at the NCMA, check out Gyre (1999): it's part of the permanent collection there.

Among their accolades are recognitions for their historic preservations, including the transformation of Saxapahaw’s Historic Cotton Mill into the Rivermill Lofts and Haw River Ballroom, now a favorite venue of visiting artists.

Other incredible rehabilitations are right in the Ware’s downtown neighborhood, including the Contemporary Art Museum CAM RaleighMarbles Kids Museum, and the Lofts on W. Martin St.

One of Transfer Co’s future tenants at #raleighsfoodhall can already attest for the level of functional style, yet local sensibility that Clearscapes brings. Videri Chocolate Factory brought them in to help convert an old depot into a unique destination where customers would feel invited to sit down for a cup of hot chocolate or go on a factory tour, to witness the entire chocolate-making process from start to finish. Not only did Clearscapes preserve and highlight the industrial feel of the old Raleigh Depot, but they built a functional factory and created a one-of-a-kind experience for Videri’s customers.

Clearscapes has built their business and reputation on a deep appreciation of art, on preserving the old beauty and charm of historic architecture, and delivering modern amenities and contemporary style. These are the designers behind your future home at the Ware. Waiting to design your “functional piece of art” that will engage you with your community and inspire you as your private oasis.
