This is a construction progress photo for a new 250-bed adult and 12-bed adolescent facility designed for the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York and the New York State Office of Mental Health. ARIG provided interior design services for this 243,000 square foot, six-story, facility. Visit the project page to find out more about this project and the design team.

Easy to spot, you will still find phone kiosks in the United Kingdom, yes...that is me inside!
Open plan offices and benching have become the norm for better or worse and we know in America there is a tendency to speak with gusto. I have a theory, or maybe it's a wish, if everyone were to speak discreetly noise in the workplace would not be a problem, but unfortunately we all know this is not possible. Searching for a solution to the noise, "phone booths" have moved into the workplace in many shapes and sizes, some resemble the original outdoor concept and others have a modern twist. Framery Acoustics has a large assortment of free standing models, the phone booth is much like the original along with several quick escape configurations for one on one work sessions or quiet work.
A row house located on 51st Street caught my eye. It appears to have a glazed facade behind a full height combination screen and green wall containing punched rectangular openings and cascading ivy. A full height narrow glass lite is visible on the right.
Or don't look up are the words I heard from my companion walking behind me in NYC where there are construction cranes everywhere!

The ARIG blog was temporarily closed in 2013 after updating our website with a new template the post layouts were jumbled and not easily fixed.
A short time later a good thing happened-- we were selected for a number of interior planning and design projects.
We have been working hard behind the scenes this year hoping to bring the blog back.
Some of the old posts are back and will be joined with new posts very soon!
It's a work in progress, so please be patient, we have many big ideas that we would love to share with you!
