Technology consultancy Linq will be developing a tech-enhanced, multi-sensory journey for visitors to experience throughout the space. Higgins Quasebarth & Partners are consulting on the preservation and restoration elements of the historic property, such as the stained-glass windows on the second floor and the intricate limestone and granite façade.

When visiting and exploring the museum you will agree, that the architecture and design environment captures not only the spirit of Fotografiska but very strongly the character of New York City.
