The Public Theater

May 13, 2009

The New York Times recently covered a project of VJ Associates. The Public Theater in New York City was redesigned by Polshek Partnership Architects. Polshek chose VJ Associates to provide the cost estimating services for this New York City Landmark building, incorporating architectural renovations, upgrading of mechanical systems, new lighting and security systems.

The revitalization includes a large glass mezzanine level overlooking a 20+ foot high lobby with glass and steel entrance doors. The goal of the design was to keep the theater inviting to the public, accessible to the disabled and efficient to theater-goers. To that extent, the new exterior now includes a glass canopy, gray granite stairs and two ramps at the entrance.
