New York architects hanrahanMeyers (hMa) apply principles of Pre-Fabrication and Green design to their newly renovated offices in Manhattan. hMa is known for clean, minimalist designs that focus on Nature. hMa has had their work featured at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and in publications worldwide. The renovation uses pre-fabricated high recycled content wall panels, low VOC paints and other finishes, and includes the installation of low energy fluorescent light fixtures and a recycling and cleaning center featuring Green cleaning products.

hanrahanMeyers architects are pleased to announce the completion of their Pre-Fabricated and Green office renovation. Last year, hMa began designing and constructing their new work space incorporating the following Pre-Fabrication and Green features:

  • All wall panels and built-in desks were pre-fabricated for speed of installation and to allow the Architects to take the new space with them when / if they move
  • Energy star rated appliances
  • Non low VOC rated surfaces and finishes
  • New recycle center / Green cleaning supplies storage area
  • New energy efficient fluorescent lights

Photos of hMa's renovation feature their 'Topo Table' (designed by partner Victoria Meyers) in the new conference room. 'Topo Table', one of the firm's Nature-based furniture designs, is made using recycled materials and is available for purchase. The renovation also features woodwork by Natural woodworker Hisao Hanafusa of Miya Shoji, as well as steel and metal work by David Teeple. Both are frequent hMa collaborators.

hMa is known for designing minimalist, award-winning Nature-based Green buildings. hanrahanMeyers' award-winning designs include: Pratt Pavilion, a new Design Center in Brooklyn, New York; Schrom Studios, a new commercial television studio in Queens, New York; Infinity Chapel, a new church for the Tenth Church of Christ, Scientist; a new Platinum LEED certified Community Center adjacent to Ground Zero in New York for Battery Park City Authority; and a new platinum LEED certified house in Amagansett, New York.
