Louis Armstrong House Museum
We designed a master plan and Phase I construction documents for the Louis Armstrong House Museum in Corona, Queens. The house was retained in 1997 by the NYC Department of Design and Construction. The building was the home of jazz trumpeter Louis Armstrong from 1943 until his death in 1971. Currently, the house is shown by appointment only through the Louis Armstrong Archives at Queens College, CUNY.
The project consists of the full documentation of existing site conditions, programmatic and restoration requirements, and proposed construction. Our work included a visitor center, ticketing office, new galleries, modifications necessary for universal accessibility, and museum-quality restoration and preservation.
