A venerable institution expands in a historic neighborhood.


Precast concrete vertical fins at the windows give the impression that the masonry skin is peeling back.


The history Center is clad in Norman bricks, which are long and thin.


 
The history Center’s stair hall has been designed as an inviting social space.


 
Its suspended steel structure is wrapped in stained poplar slats, CNC-cut and arranged to create a sculptural form based on a traditional balustrade.


Extending through the archives are passageways accessible to visitors and staff, offering views of the Filson’s treasures.


As with the main stair, the event rooms feature poplar slats. The ceiling of the upper room incorporates Lucite strips, whose unpolished edges subtly glow with reflected light.
