IA's recently completed Upper East Side townhouse project was honored with the 2017 Renaissance Award from Friends of the Upper East Side Historic District. The specialty terra cotta facade material, developed by MKCA and Boston Valley Terra Cotta, is a highlight of the project. See photo below.
This c. 1860 carved Carrara marble Italianate style mantel came to us in 20 separate pieces. We just finished restoring, rebuilding and installing it on our job in Lower Manhattan.

IA's project with Toshiko Mori Architect and Hirsch Corti Architecture is featured on Dezeen.
IA built the structures for Kaneka OLED+Shozo Toyoshisa, a two-day installation at the Museum of Art and Design.
Congrats to Toshiko Mori Architect and Collective LOK. Two of IA's projects - the Van Alen Institute and Peter Freeman Gallery - are finalists in the Architizer A+ Awards for Gallery Design. Head here to view the project profiles and vote before this Friday, April 1.
Last Saturday, we craned in 10,000 pounds of structural steel in order to combine two buildings in Brooklyn.
Watch the hand excavation, installation of a temporary shoring column, removal of a cistern, and construction of a temporary enclosure as IA builds a rear extension in Brooklyn Heights.
Bonus: blizzard footage at the end.
Watch our subcontractor, Gryf Marble & Tile, expertly install shower tile from start to (almost) finish.
The architect on our UES project visited the shop at Boston Valley Terracotta to review the facade fabrication. The material, developed by MKCA and BVTC, is a "through-body ceramic with a fine specialty aggregate used as a brownstone replacement material that is beautifully sculpted, high performing, and true to the historic materials of the era." We're excited to get our hands on it!
