The Watermill Center is a 20,000 square foot collaborative performing arts workshop under the directorship of the renowned theater artist Robert Wilson. Considered a “laboratory for art” the structure houses workshops, performance rehearsal spaces, artist’s residences, and dining facilities. Located on a large wooded lot in Southampton, New York, the center also includes outdoor spaces for performances and exhibiting sculpture.  Michielli + Wyetzner Architects’ work to renovate the existing structure includes a new corrugated zinc exterior enclosure designed with custom welded aluminum plate window surrounds and extensive site design. The interiors are serene and spare, designed for a number of uses dedicated to the creation and experience of art.
