Madison Square

New York City, NY United States

Desai/Chia, Benjamin Moore


Project Description

2008 RADA

Architectural Interiors / Merit

Desai/Chia's build-out of this “cavernous space with no light in the back” introduces both light and logic with permeable partition walls. Vertical wood planks capped by bands of clear glass enclose private rooms and define open living areas. Light filters through the offset boards and the glass bands at night, emphasizing the high ceilings.

Said one smitten juror: “I like the way the wood and glass vibrate back and forth between each other.”
