School of Visual Arts MFA Photo
Photography by Alexander Severin
The School of Visual Arts MFA Photo, Video and Related Media Department, newly renovated and expanded. Located at ground level, the original space was cut off from the street by three disused loading bays. The new design reclaims the vestigial industrial space, expanding the usable footprint and creating an active, multipurpose social space.
The 10,000 sf project for repeat client SVA includes renovating photography studios, classrooms, and administrative spaces, as well as opening up the sealed façade of this former warehouse to maximize daylight and visibility.
