Friends of the High Line

It was absolutely essential that the first official office space of the Friends of the High Line convey the character and spirit of the non-profit organization while working within a tight space and limited budget. Large format photographic panels, left over from an exhibition, were mounted on the three surrounding walls to make the compact space feel more expansive; giving the impression that one was actually up on the elevated rail.

    Haroun Khalifa loved the feeling of getting soaked to the skin in the first rain of the year, so he skipped about and got a wonderful warm drenching, and opened his mouth to let the raindrops plop on his tongue. He arrived home looking as wet and shiny as pomfret in the sea.
