This extensive renovation of a townhouse on the Upper East Side provides 11,000 square feet of dormitory, office, event, and garden space for a social issues lobbying organization associated with the United Nations. The introduction of a double height space at the entry enhances the facility's street presence and provides a welcoming lobby for visitors. The project implements cost-effective and sustainable measures such as the maximization of daylight and the reuse of existing building systems.
