Convent of the Sacred Heart Library: Restoring Historic Charm

Ornate wood-paneled library with modern furnishings and bookshelves covering the walls.

The Convent of the Sacred Heart Library in New York City has undergone a stunning refurbishment by 1100 Architect, blending modern design elements with the historic character of the early 20th-century landmarked building.

This library, part of an all-girls K-12 school on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, now features a welcoming environment with the strategic use of color, texture, and pattern. Modular furniture allows for versatile group and individual study settings, while naturally lit nooks provide spaces for focused learning. The project is part of an ongoing collaboration between 1100 Architect and Convent of the Sacred Heart, which also includes the recent design of a new Future Lab and Makerspace.
