New York School of Interior Design
New York, New York
With its new graduate facility, the nearly century-old New York School of Interior Design (NYSID) has a center that embodies a studio atmosphere, while fostering a sense of community and collaboration for faculty and students. The open, loft-like quality of the sustainably designed space provides for maximum light in the work studios and a flexible layout with expanded circulation and gathering areas for critiques and public forums. Student amenities and support areas include an auditorium, student lounge, resource library and light lab. Gensler designers referenced the school’s Upper East Side roots in articulating NYSID’s brand throughout the LEED® Platinum-certified center.
