Four Projects Garner Five Awards

Published on November 2nd, 2011

Four diverse projects designed by Centerbrook – an art gallery in Massachusetts, a new campus for scientific research in New York, an oceanfront resort hotel in Rhode Island, and a LEED Platinum academic building in Connecticut – garnered recognition recently.

Centerbrook received a Merit Award from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) New England for the Addison Gallery of American Art at Phillips Academy Andover. The project entailed the expansion and extensive renovations of a 1931 building. The Addison is the only prominent art museum in America located on a high school campus.

AIA Connecticut bestowed a Design Award on Centerbrook for Hillside Campus at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory on Long Island. The new facilities consist of six laboratory buildings that expand by 40 percent the institution’s capacity to conduct research in the areas of cancer, neuroscience, human genetics, and quantitative biology.

Eco-Structure Magazine presented an Evergreen Award to Centerbrook and Hopkins Architects of London for their design of Kroon Hall, the new home for the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. The LEED Platinum building also was selected recently as one of 16 international projects featured in Architype Review’s Sustainability Issue. It was the 16th design award that the two firms have earned for Kroon.

Centerbrook’s design of the Ocean House hotel in Watch Hill, Rhode Island captured a Grand Award from Builder Magazine as well as an Honor Award from the Association of General Contractors of Massachusetts. The project entailed the faithful and painstaking replication of a Victorian building as well as the addition of two wings to accommodate myriad modern amenities.

Centerbrook has received 343 design awards all told.
