St. Basil's Academy Retreat
117 East 57th Street NYC
Renovation and additions to grounds and historic stone structures for meetings, retreats and corporate events.
Meeting rooms, housing, kitchens, ampitheater and mumerous out-buildings for the Greek Orthodox Church and as a corporate events retreat.
Architecture maintains and incorperates existing stone elements while blending modern materials into a tapestry. Bow trusses are staggered and overlapped to allow for ample light and high ceilings with clear spans and so providing airy light-filled interiors.
