As part of WHSAD’s ongoing partnership with Heritage Equity Partners, six pairs of students will spend the next two months designing the 25 Kent sales office that will be built out this summer in the building currently rising at 55 North 10th Street, here in Williamsburg. Students will be mentored by architects from Gensler, who will provide regular feedback on the students’ plans as they develop their designs for the interior space, including the layout, finishes, and renderings.
As the initial meeting for this project, the students took a tour of 55 North 10th Street on Wednesday, March 16th where they were able to see the different stages of construction the hotel is in, and spent time taking measurements in the sales office space. This week, on March 24th, the students will meet with their architect mentors at the Gensler offices to begin discussing their ideas.
