El Museo del Barrio

New York, NY

Located in the 1924 Heckscher Building at the north end of New York's famed Museum Mile, El Museo del Barrio has been promoting Latino art and culture since 1969. IBI Group ▪ Gruzen Samton renovated, adaptively reused and expanded the first floor of the museum. Improvements include treatment of the lower facade, redesign of the entry courtyard, modernization to the building lobby and galleries, enlargement of the existing museum shop and the addition of a cafe.

This project received a Design Excellence Award from the Art Commission of the City of New York in 2004, the 2011 Merit Award from the American Institute of Architects, New York Chapter and an award from the Municipal Art Society, 2012 Honorable Mention for Best Neighborhood Catalyst.
