We are excited to share that the interior of The Arts Center at Governors Island is one of the winners of the 2021 AIANY Design Awards, an annual Design Awards program that recognizes outstanding architectural design by AIA New York members.
"The 40,000-square-foot interior renovation makes the most of the building’s unique features and historic character. The long and narrow windowed expanse that once stored material now houses light-filled galleries and studios for art and dance. The original truss structure was exposed and restored, creating a loft-like, luminous main gallery on the upper level, with an adjoining reception area set behind a clear glass wall that preserves the expansive quality of the space. Smaller rooms for performance, rehearsal, and exhibition, along with art studios on both levels, enjoy abundant natural light. A new stair and elevator allow for integrated, accessible programming, and a café on the lower level, framed by an exposed-brick wall, offers views of Lower Manhattan and the surrounding harbor."
