Chapin School

client: NK Architects

New York, NY

The assignment was not only to document the interior expansion and renovation of the school. We were hired by NK Architects to explore the context and lighting of this century-old building located on the East End of Manhattan.


The school can be seen over the East River from various points in Queens (Astoria and Roosevelt Island). The gym which is the “crown” of the building gets flooded by the first ray of light every morning all year around. It was an honor to document this project during two seasons: Winter and Summer.
