Poulin + Morris Announces New Projects for Cornell’s Department of Communication, New-York Historical Society, The Ramaz School, and 230 Peachtree

After twenty years occupying 3 floors of Kennedy Hall, Cornell University’s expanding Department of Communication is moving to a new, 19,000-square-foot space located on the fourth floor of the University’s Mann Library. Designed by JMZ Architects and Planners, the new facility will offer faculty and staff offices, state-of-the-art research labs, and collaborative space. Poulin + Morris is developing a comprehensive branding, environmental graphics, donor recognition, and wayfinding sign program for the Department.

New-York Historical Society

Founded in 1804 with a mission to explore the political, cultural, and social history of New York, New-York Historical Society is the city’s oldest museum. The Museum is currently renovating its fourth floor galleries—home to the Henry Luce III Center for the Study of American Culture. The renovation will include a new Tiffany Gallery, showcasing the Museum’s vast and world-renowned Tiffany lamp collection, as well as The Center for the Study of Women’s History—the first permanent exhibition in the nation dedicated to women’s history, presenting special exhibitions, public and academic programs, and an immersive multimedia film. The firm is working with New-York Historical Society in creating a comprehensive branding, environmental graphics, donor recognition, and wayfinding sign program for the new Luce Center.

The Ramaz School

As a coeducational, Modern Orthodox yeshivah day school, The Ramaz School educates students from nursery through twelfth grade, providing an exceptional education in Judaic and general studies with a commitment to menschlichkeit, focusing on strength of character, respect for others, and integrity. Founded in 1937 on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, the school nurtures the development of students to grow personally, religiously, and spiritually. After an expansion and renovation, Ramaz was in need of a donor recognition program to honor its supporters. The firm is working with Ramaz and FXFowle Architects in developing a memorable and reverent donor recognition program.

230 Peachtree

Portman Holdings is renovating a 400,000-square-foot office building located at 230 Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Georgia into a mixed-use real estate development. Built in 1965, the renovated 27-story office tower will consist of 290,000 square-feet of office space spanning the 10th through 27th floors while a new 200-room Hotel Indigo will occupy floors 2 to 9. The project is situated above the Peachtree Center MARTA public transportation station, providing easy accessibility to many of the city’s major attractions and destinations. Poulin + Morris is working with the architectural firm John Portman & Associates in creating an environmental graphics and wayfinding sign program for the commercial office tower, as well as an extensive branding program for the hotel.
