hanrahan Meyers architects (hMa) are pleased to announce the completion of their Pre-Fabricated and Green office renovation. Last year, hMa began designing and constructing their new work space incorporating the following Pre-Fabrication and Green features:
- all wall panels and built-in desks to be Pre-Fabricated for speed of installation, to allow the architects to take the new space with them when / if they move
- energy star rated appliances
- non + low VOC rated surfaces and finishes
- new recycle center / Green cleaning supplies storage area
- new energy efficient florescent lights
Photos of hMa’s renovation feature their ‘Topo Table’ (designed by partner Victoria Meyers) in the new conference room. ‘Topo Table’, one of the firm’s Nature-based furniture designs, is made using recycled materials and is available for purchase. The renovation also features woodwork by Natural woodworker Hisao Hanafusa of Miya Shoji, as well as steel and metal work by David Teeple. Both are frequent hMa collaborators.
hMa are known for designing minimalist, award-winning Nature-based Green buildings. Hanrahan Meyers’ award-winning designs include Pratt Pavilion, a new Design Center in Brooklyn, New York; Schrom Studios' television studio in Queens, New York; Infinity Chapel church for the Tenth Church of Christ Scientist; a new Platinum LEED certified Community Center adjacent to Ground Zero in New York for Battery Park City Authority; and a new platinum LEED certified house in Amagansett, New York.
