The Architect's Newspaper Visits the 122 Community Arts Center
March 16, 2018
This week, the Architect’s Newspaper took a preview tour of the 122 Community Arts Center in Manhattan’s East Village. The project, led by Partner Maitland Jones and Principal Ameet Hiremath, will house two theater companies, a painting gallery and residency program, a social service agency, and a dance organization. “To meet their needs, DBP carried the building, lightly, into an adjacent lot. Their addition, essentially circulation and a new entrance, hugs a former masonry schoolhouse designed in 1894 by C.B.J. Snyder—New York’s go-to school architect at the time,” writer Audrey Wachs notes. “The addition, clad in a perforated steel scrim and tucked carefully into the north wall, lightens the school’s heavy red-brick facade without compromising its classical symmetry.” The project will be complete in the late spring of 2018.
