CBB Projects: Archtober “Buildings of the Day”

Three CBB lighting design projects were each featured as “Building of the Day” in the AIA New York Section’s 2014 Archtober festival – an annual, month-long celebration of NYC’s architectural highlights:

  • Stapleton Library (shown at right)– the upgrade of the New York Public Library’s Stapleton branch in Staten Island, which includes a new, 7,000 SF addition.  The re-designed library’s lighting provides a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere for the community, with flexible spaces to accommodate a variety of activities.
  • Post-Disaster Interim Urban Housing – a modular, post-disaster housing prototype for New York City’s Department of Design and Construction (DDC).  Working with Garrison Architects, CBB designed low-cost but flexible lighting to enable the prototype’s use in a range of urban settings.
  • New York University SCPS Academic Center (shown at left) – a 125,000 SF, consolidated base for NYU’s School for Continuing Professional Studies (SCPS), whose various degree programs were formerly housed at separate locations.  CBB’s lighting , visible through a glass curtain wall frontage, connects the facility to its urban surroundings while low-brightness perimeter lighting shows respect for the Center’s residential neighborhood.
