As part of the DDC’s (Department of Design’ and Construction) Design Excellence Program, nARCHITECTS has designed a new diesel pump station that allows for improved traffic backdrop patterns, along with a new electrical transformer building and a wider renovation of an existing maintenance building. The new monitoring booth and electrical transformer buildings feature tile cladding that takes its cues from traffic signage. This project was honored with an Excellence in Design Award by the New York City Design Commission.
