3S Artspace

Portsmouth, NH

Photography: David J. Murray,


3S Artspace is a nonprofit alternative arts organization that combines the only midsize, flexible performance space of its kind in the area, a large, non-commercial gallery with future artist studios above, and an affordable and approachable restaurant serving as a local hub, 3S is ideal as a gathering place for patrons and locals alike. McHenry Architecture worked collaboratively with 3S Artspace, Wright-Ryan Construction, Ambit Engineering, Summit Engineering, terra firma landscape architecture, and Winter Holben Design through an integrated design project delivery.



3S has been years in the making, years of careful planning, collaboration and programming within our community. This adaptive reuse project in downtown Portsmouth, NH is a place for curious minds of all ages and backgrounds to gather, explore, cultivate new perspectives and ideas and fall in love with the experiences of eating, seeing, hearing and making, all under one roof. 

What 3S Artspace says about us

“… the McHenry team were dedicated not only to understanding and implementing our design needs, but worked to understand the values of the organization that was driving them.”
