NAK Design Strategies worked with KPMB Architects and an interdisciplinary team in the reinvention of this important cultural institution. The strategic architectural addition of nearly 14,000ft. expands and modernizes the facility while bringing the experience of the museum closer to the street. The landscape design features a series of terraced platforms that create a series of inviting outdoor spaces for casual seating and formal gathering. A plant palette focusing on all-season interest brings life to the sidewalk and balances the building’s clean lines.
