CHINA INSTITUTE
NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES

The new China Institute headquarters in New York City occupies 30,000sf on two floors of an existing office building near the World Trade Center Memorial Park. The new space expands on China Institute’s growing Chinese language class program as well as its renowned art gallery exhibitions and lecture series. The admin­istrative offices, state of the art classrooms and gallery/pre function areas are complete and soon the large ground floor multifunction hall with cafe, bookstore, and perfor­mance stage will follow. The entire space will ultimately be connected by a two story glass and stainless steel façade with a spectacular glass exterior elevator that will fittingly serve as the iconic entrance for the entire project. Local artisans were employed and authentic Chinese sourced decorative products used as part of its interior fit out. The project is LEED silver certified.
