New York Public Library - Wallach Division

Sciame was the Construction Manager responsible for the renovated Wallach Division, which is comprised of the Art and Architecture Collection, the Prints Collection, and the Photography Collection. The Division houses original works of art as well as reference materials covering painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, photography, and the history of architecture and design from prehistoric times to the present.

The renovation dramatically increased the public and staff space of the division. Collection space was centralized, expanded, and a more efficient flow was created between the reference staff, the readers, and materials through the redesign of reference areas. The reconfiguration of staff workspace into discrete areas opened up additional space within the division reading rooms reserved for Prints and Photography and for Art and Architecture. In addition, the reading rooms were wired for laptop computers and internet access.

The Perelman Performing Arts Center will provide versatile layouts across three theater spaces, which can be combined to offer a range of seating configurations. Additionally, the venue will feature a lobby level complete with a bar, café, terrace, and stage.
