The Studio Museum in Harlem

Sciame is the Construction Manager responsible for the new five story, 82,000 SF museum, replacing the existing home of the historic Studio Museum in Harlem. The new museum will contain a larger and enhanced gallery space, dedicated art receiving area, store and café, operations offices, and a climate controlled gallery preparation suite.

The lobby’s space will increase in size and become a welcoming civic lobby that engages with the 125th street. It will also have the capabilities to transform into a flexible outdoor space, which will encourage public interaction and extend event space. The museum will have a larger theater and contain state-of-the-art lighting, sound, AV, and infrastructure.
