French Institute Alliance Française |
This center of French culture completed a major reconstruction and expansion of its facility; improving classrooms, developing an exhibition area, replacing systems, and adding an elegant “Sky Room” at the top. Levien was successful in coordinating extensive internal improvements within a very tight space while parts of the building were occupied. All this was done on a tight schedule so classes could move back to the building as quickly as possible. Introducing new mechanical and fire protection systems along with a dramatic top floor skylight into this prewar building was a specific challenge that was met with success.
