NYC Taxi & Limousine for New York City Department of Design and Construction
The NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission commissioned Spacesmith to renovate its control center in Long Island City. An essential aspect of the project was to design and phase the work so as not to disrupt ongoing operations of the 30,000 square foot facility where all New York City cab drivers receive mandatory vehicle inspections. The design was inspired by the signature color and 'look' of the iconic NYC taxicab, including a new bull-nosed coping around the roof parapet as well as 'retro' finish accents in the public spaces. This project was developed in close collaboration with the NYC Department of Design and Construction.
