Jonathan Rose Companies
 
New York School of Interior Design
New York, New York

Jonathan Rose Companies was engaged by the New York School of Interior Design (NYSID) to provide services relating to the expansion of the graduate school. Founded in 1916, the School is the only institution of higher learning in New York devoted exclusively to the design of the interior environment. Jonathan Rose Companies’ role on this project began with an assessment of NYSID’s real estate portfolio and an analysis of potential options and solutions for expansion. We then quickly launched into a full site search to meet the growing programmatic needs. Concurrent with identifying a suitable site, Jonathan Rose Companies managed the design and construction team selection and oversaw the project implementation to occupancy of NYSID’s new space in time for school to open in August 2010.  A second floor phase II was also completed ahead of schedule in July 2011.

NYSID was dedicated to the advancement of the discipline of interior design through education, research, professional development, public programs, and community outreach. The new graduate school space, serves interior architecture, lighting, sustainability and furniture design educational programs, and is housed in a space designed and constructed to LEED Platinum certification standards.

Jonathan Rose Companies advised on the green elements of the design which include: efficient HVAC and lighting systems with controls, recycled content and local source materials, and gracious use of daylight and views. Additionally, Jonathan Rose Companies assisted NYSID in ensuring a green operations and maintenance plan.

The entire project team collaborated with NYSID’s leadership and administration to create a teaching and learning space that models the ideals of the institution and sets the stage for the future of education for the interior environment.
