Harlem Biospace - Harlem Biospace

Interior Design - Public or Institutional

- Winner

Harlem Biospace is a new biotech incubator, the first of its kind to provide affordable wet lab space in a co-working environment in NYC. NYC is perfectly position to surpass traditional biotech hubs like San Francisco Bay area and Cambridge/Boston. NYC has a magical creative energy and exacting design. Consider the typical laboratory space: dropped ceilings, linoleum floors, fluorescent lighting, veneer countertops. Windowless caves where scientists hunch over their microscopes and computers, utterly sterile and isolated. That is a far cry from Harlem Biospace, located in a 19th century candy research facility in the heart of Manhattanville. We have created a space that inspires our scientist entrepreneurs and reflected NYC and the makers and designers that make this city unique.

Urban Future Lab - NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering / The Public Society

Interior Design - Public or Institutional


In the start-up world it is easy to become so focused on the details of getting an enterprise off the ground that founders can forget that a sense of wonder is what inspired them to take the chance of starting a company in the first place. With this in mind we designed the interior experience of the Urban Future Lab, a start-up incubator, to give the tenant companies that work there things to spark imagination, to play, and to find inspiration in unexpected places.
