Jewish Braille Institute, New York

Integrating graphics and architecture

Whitehouse & Company carefully integrated both functional and donor signage into Fink and Platt, Architects renovation of the Jewish Braille Institute Headquarters and Library in New York. The room signs connect visually with the door frames by means of a perforated chassis making a reference to Braille, decorative Braille number supergraphics indicate floor levels, a major donor plaque sits in a recess its face flush with the wall, and the street number grows as a sculptural form from the entrance canopy on the street façade.
