New York University Psychology Lab
Graf & Lewent Architects was retained by NYU to completely renovate a 6,000 square foot space in one of its science buildings to create a new multi-purpose Psychology Lab. At the heart of the facility is a MEG (Magneto Encephalography) suite, housing a room-size MEG device, which measures human brainwaves as part of psychology experiments. The MEG requires a highly controlled environment, including isolation from vibration and electromagnetic radiation. The balance of the Lab consists of faculty offices, group work areas for post-doctoral and graduate students, and sound attenuated experiment rooms for research projects. The design incorporated large areas of glass at the faculty office fronts to introduce daylight into the interior spaces, custom millwork workstations and a lighting system to provide balanced indirect and direct lighting throughout the space.
