This event is part of Archtober’s virtual Building of the Day program series. Join us for a virtual tour of Staten Island Museum at Snug Harbor.
One of five connected historic buildings at Snug Harbor, Building A is a former sailor’s dormitory, renovated by Gluckman Tang Architects as the new home of the Staten Island Museum. To achieve the environmental conditions necessary for a museum, Gluckman Tang upgraded the building envelope by installing a new liner inside of the neo-classical building’s exterior walls. The replacement of the building’s internal structure allowed for generous galleries to be created at both ends of the building. The project opened to the public in 2015 and was certified LEED Gold.
Architect: Gluckman Tang Architects
