New York City and Philadelphia
Jennifer Carpenter Architect has completed two projects for 3rd Ward, the avant garde multidisciplinary education outfit. For 3rd Ward Brooklyn outpost, Jennifer Carpenter Architect designed the new reception space, fabrication workshops, and co-working rental desk floor. Students and professionals come to learn a variety of hands-on and computer based skills, and to collaborate in the flexible use common areas. The project included a new reception desk with retail displays, reconfigured professional and amateur woodshops, and custom steel and wood worktables with integral power. JCA’s design makes the most of the small construction budget and juxtaposes clean, new interventions with the building’s historic fabric.
For 3rd Ward Philadelphia, Jennifer Carpenter Architect created planning masterplan studies and provided design consulting and custom workstation design.
