We’re excited to announce the Northeast Bronx YMCA won an Architecture Honor Award at the 2022 Center for Architecture (AIANY) Design Awards!
The 50,000 square foot facility, built amid a three-ace urban forest of City-owned land, was developed with a broad coalition of community leaders and elected officials in response to the critical need for a community and recreational hub.
The Northeast Bronx branch – the first new YMCA in the Bronx in 30 years – melds its indoor and outdoor areas to form a campus that connects members to the natural environment. The environmentally friendly, standalone facility includes an urban agricultural roof and teaching kitchen and protected outdoor play and program space for enhanced camp and afterschool programs.
The facility is also home to an aquatics center featuring two pools, a full-length basketball court, gym and exercise equipment, an indoor track, wellness center, a childcare facility, and multi-purpose rooms for classes, events, and community meetings.
We're thrilled that The Essex in the Lower East Side has received an Honor Award from the BSA and AIA New York's 2021 Housing Design Awards! The Essex draws inspiration from the surrounding neighborhood, specifically the tenement buildings with their multi-layered facades and window openings that vary in size and depth.
The building includes 195 residential apartments with 50% of the units designated as permanently affordable, a new Essex Street Market, a cinema, the largest rooftop farm in Manhattan, and an entrance to the below-grade Market Line.
Congratulations to Delancey Street Associates and to the entire design team!

We are proud to see our lighting featured in the renovation of the Mingei International Museum in San Diego's 1,200-acre Balboa Park, by LUCE et Studio. One focus for Luce was to make the museum—until then a niche destination for folk art enthusiasts—more widely accessible to San Diego’s diverse population.
Luce says that she is most proud of “the interaction I had with the commissioned artists. I was almost like the director of a film; that’s what an architect’s job is.”

In September 2021 Mingei International Museum in San Diego opened the new wing with interior architecture works that have a strong connection with craftsmanship, an important theme in the collection of Mingei International Museum
Inside Outside contributed with a layered curtain installation called 'Sessions'. A design of which the concept is derived from the shape of the leaves of the Jacaranda tree, also known as the 'Blue Jacaranda', a tree that was first introduced to Bilbao Park,home to Mingei Museum, by the botanist Kate Sessions (1857-1940) and became the official tree of San Diego.
