Center for Fiction Wins 2019 Architect’s Newspaper Best of Design Award
The Architect’s Newspaper has announced its 2019 Best of Design Awardees, and the Center for Fiction received an Honorable Mention in the Institutional Interiors category.
We are so proud of the project team, led by BKSK partner Julie Nelson and Director of Interior Design, Gerry Ende. The Center for Fiction, founded in 1820 as the Mercantile Library, is the only organization in the United States devoted solely to the art of fiction. Its new headquarters, relocated from Manhattan to the heart of the Downtown Brooklyn Cultural District, offers 17,000 sf of resource-rich space to literary professionals and enthusiasts. Programming for the space accounts for housing a circulating collection of more than 100,000 fiction titles, a bookstore, auditorium space for educational programming, a writer’s studio, rooms for discussion groups, and administrative support space.
