FROM THE ARCHITECTS:
The most recent phase of Ennead Architects’ ongoing renovation of The Public Theater – the façade restoration and entry/lobby redesign – celebrates an important New York City landmark and revitalizes the identity of the institution. Design goals for the project were to preserve the historic structure and façade and to enrich the theater experience with a dramatic new sequence of arrival, enlarged lobby and modern patron amenities. The design’s careful blend of modern and historic elements reflects the nature of the acclaimed theatrical work for which The Public Theater is renowned – both traditional and experimental. This revitalization continues the successful adaptive reuse of this important New York City landmark, making the building more welcoming, vibrant and accessible for all New Yorkers.
