This project consists of the renovation of two floors of the former Guggenheim - SoHo museum into an upscale retail establishment. A feature of this ground-breaking project includes flexible space for special programs and cultural events in the space. An innovative bracing system using composite cast-iron steel and concrete columns, cantilevering off of the existing 1890’s brick foundation pier helped create an open space. Structural features include bracing systems to support floating display cases.
