The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York has revealed its $450 million renovation and expansion from locally based Diller Scofidio + Renfro, executed in collaboration with Gensler.

The 80-year old institution’s comprehensive, multi-phased redesign has added 30 percent more gallery space to it, while emphasizing the building’s connection to the vernacular of midtown Manhattan. Anchored by a minimalist material palette, MoMA’s fresh interior design reflects principles of 20th century modernism that correlates with the existing fabric of the property.

Welcoming visitors into the double-height lobby is a 95,500-pound plane composed of steel plates and concealed ribs, which is positioned to appear as if it slices through the glass exterior and hover above the main doors. Wrapped in a glazed facade, the light-filled space is outfitted with extensive circulation routes and designated areas for visitors to pause and reflect.

The expanded ground floor is now home to 3,900 square feet of open galleries, while the Studio and Daylight Galleries are partitioned by a frameless, suspended glass wall clad with a fritted surface. An interior glass wall in the Studio, which sits at the heart of the museum, is embedded with metal mesh to control sound and light mitigation. More frameless glass panels function as vertical and horizontal beams in public spaces like the Street Level Gallery to maximize visibility to the street.

Beyond the galleries sits the 5,950-square-foot flagship store on the museum’s Cellar level, naturally illuminated by the glass exterior. Additional facilities include a second-floor Creativity Lab and an eatery on the sixth floor attached to an outdoor terrace.

Stepping inside, it’s immediately apparent that the expansive use of wood creates a warm and cozy interior. In the entryway, a custom nook has wall hooks, open shelving, and a cabinet that doubles as a bench.

A door next to the library opens to reveal a home office. One of the walls has a recessed world map and minimal shelving that’s surrounded by hidden lighting, creating an eye-catching focal point for the room.

Back into the main area of the apartment, there’s built-in angled shelving that’s adjacent to the dining area. Three sculptural glass pendant lights hang above the dining table, anchoring it in the open space.

The kitchen has been designed in a U-shape, with the cooking area on the left, and the cleanup area on the right. A small section of countertop below the window connects the two areas.

Building a cohesive colour scheme throughout the entire home evokes feelings of comforting constancy, and a solid sense of belonging from room to room. This type of interior can include a variety of accent colours that appear in varying quantities over different spaces. Tonal changes make added layers and avoid rigidity in the scheme. Let us guide you on a tour of two beautiful home interiors that each follow one cohesive colour theme throughout. We’ll also explore the added beauty of rustic wooden ceilings in each place, and look at how classic exposed wooden beams, archways, brickwork and stonework create dramatic contrast with more modern decor elements.

In with the Old and with the New is a project designed by Scenario Architecture in 2015, covers an area of 122 m2 and is located in London, United Kingdom. Photography by Matthew Clayton.

“Our clients lived in this ground-floor flat for years before deciding to renovate. Its dilapidated glass conservatory froze in winter, overheated in summer and restricted natural light coming into the adjacent sitting room. But its generous proportions offered great potential for a redesign.

The challenge? To design a modern extension with plenty of natural light while respecting the segmented layout of the original Victorian structure. In an East London conservation area, this wouldn’t be easy.

We collaborated with local planners to secure support for our bold proposal: a glazed rear extension with a sustainably-sourced timber-clad frame housing the kitchen and dining area. The home’s original rear wall remains intact, with its windows and doorway re-purposed as internal “balconies””.
