The Frick Collection

By | KR Projects | No Comments

May is Historic Preservation Month, and, as such, it is a fitting time to announce one of Kohler Ronan’s latest projects:  The expansion and enhancement of The Frick Collection’s facilities. Pittsburgh industrialist Henry Clay Frick engaged Carrère and Hastings to build his family a home in New York City, and the building was complete in 1914.  In 1935, the late Gilded Age mansion was converted by John Russell Pope from the Frick’s private residence to a public museum consisting of exceptional galleries, new public spaces, and gardens. A separate building on 71st Street was erected in the same year to accommodate the growth of the Frick Art Reference Library. Today, the institution is recognized as one of the world’s premier museums and research institutions. Significant increases to the number of visitors, and the pressing need to enhance collection care, conservation facilities, and public programming initiatives, have necessitated the facilities’ expansion and enhancements currently in design.

Following the earlier selections of Selldorf Architects as leading designer, and Beyer Blinder Belle as executive architect, Kohler Ronan is pleased to have been named as consulting engineer for the project providing MEP/FP design as well as energy analysis. We look forward to collaborating with our colleagues at Selldorf and Beyer Blinder Belle, as well as The Frick Collection, to realize the goals of this New York City landmark and national treasure.
