Harlem Village Academy, in association with Civic Builders, developed a new construction high school building on West 124th Street. STUDIOS provided Interior Design Services focusing on both the overall design direction of the interior space, as well as specific design decisions that impacted the base building.

STUDIOS’ overall design direction for the interiors was all-encompassing, guiding the integration of the interior materials, finishes and color palette throughout the building, including the lobby, corridors, offices, classrooms, Harkness Rooms, Common Areas, library, gallery, gym, cafeteria, Network Offices, and rooftop. The school’s graphics, built-in millwork, and a student work exhibition system should were also designed by STUDIOS. Cooper, Robertson & Partners were the architects of the base building.
