The most rewarding among my current interior design projects is the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation’s headquarters at 777 Third Ave. in Manhattan. Scheduled for completion this spring, the 22,000 s/f, two-floor office fit-out was a challenging workplace design undertaking that called for seamlessly combining the existing aesthetic with new ideas and layouts within an expanded space of a venerable non-profit organization. This included designing a new floating architectural staircase connecting two floors occupied by the Foundation as well as installing high-end finishes. I drew a lot of satisfaction from assisting a non-profit that provides health services to undeserved communities.
