Judd House Museum Master Plan
MBB’s master plan explored the challenges of converting the former residence and art studio of artist Donald Judd into a house museum. The project involved working with engineers at Arup Fire to develop non-invasive strategies for preserving the existing art and building design, making the building safe and code-compliant, while maintaining the unique character of the place where Judd lived and worked. Our work included stabilizing the building and sidewalk vaults and negotiating a “life safety” strategy with the Building Department. The master plan outlined a preservation strategy and re-programmed various parts of the building for museum uses.
