NXTHVN by Deborah Berke Partners
Deborah Berke Partners' NXTHVN is an art incubator for emerging artists of colour

“NXTHVN builds on ideas we developed 20 years earlier in our design for the Yale School of Art: that the best things come from complex combinations of program and use. At NXTHVN one finds artists in residence, with technical studios and facilities, a public commons and cafe, a theatre, a gallery and an internship program. We call this kind of project one that is ‘more than...’ This is entirely in keeping with Titus’ own visionary project.”

TenBerke deftly blends new and old at Harvard’s Lewis International Law Center

Through subtraction and addition, the firm introduced new facade elements on the top-floor addition and at the entrance, using aluminum composite panels fabricated by Massachusetts-based Sunrise Erectors to secure the windows and provide shading. The replacement windows and the new high-performance glazing were treated with a pinstriped ceramic frit and placed over an insulated spandrel to optimize the window-to-wall ratio and mitigate solar heat gain and glare The slenderness and depth of vertically oriented aluminum composite fins that shade the additions’ glazing also blend with the original structure’s tall stone piers. The result is not so much an addition as a melding of new and old.

“There is a well-balanced juxtaposition between the upper floors—wrapped with smaller windows lending a sense of privacy and intimacy—and the lower floors, filled with wide open common spaces projecting a positive image out onto the streetscape. It is well thought out, and a great example of what supportive housing can mean to its residents and contribute to a neighborhood.” — Juror Brian Loughlin, AIA
