International Center of Photography Museum
Location 250 Bowery, New York, NY
Project Size 11,000 SF
JRM Construction Management completed the build-out of the International Center of Photography (ICP’s) new two-floor home in the heart of Manhattan’s Lower East Side neighborhood. JRM constructed a 90-foot, all-glass, street-level façade inviting visitors to explore the building’s public space and enter ICP’s expansive front gallery. A café with its own street entrance and a large rear gallery were also key elements of the museum’s design.
Project elements enabled ICP to exhibit work in many ways, including ceiling-mounted power grids, which allow for flexible and precise lighting. Exposed ceilings added height to the space, and the exposed ductwork, together with the installed structural columns, define the elemental experience of the museum. JRM also installed a new museum-quality HVAC system with humidity control.
