This extensive renovation transforms a landmark five-story structure into the new home that supports the Vilcek Foundation’s mission to “raise awareness of immigrant contributions in America and foster appreciation of the arts and sciences.” With the building including a public gall ery for rotating exhibitions and administrative offices, the new headquarters marks an expansion of their mission and public programming at a pivotal moment. Details and materials illuminate and amplify space throughout the narrow building.
