PARC FOUNDATION

New York, USA

2008

1/6

A street-level storefront in the NOHO-East district of Manhattan was transformed into a home for a new non-profit art and architecture foundation. The 2,000 square-foot space features a main gallery, a separate project space, administrative offices, and support areas. The spatial configuration responds to the foundation’s need for flexible programming, while the new materials, finishes, and detailing anticipate heavy use over time. Polycarbonate partitions maximize the amount of natural light filtering into the office workstations, while artificial lighting provides a range of illumination options as well as highlights the existing structure.
