Long Island Museum of American Art, History, and Carriages: Master Plan and Space Planning
Stony Brook, New York


RGR devised a master plan for the future development of the museum's nine-acre campus in Stony Brook, New York, which consists of 13 buildings, access roads and parking areas, walkways, gardens, and patios. The master plan focused on identifying and addressing long-term space needs, as well as improving visitor orientation and wayfinding, outdoor program spaces, visitor amenities, and physical accessibility. After an initial site inventory and analysis effort, RGR worked with members of the museum's Board of Trustees and key members of the museum's administrative, curatorial, educational, and maintenance staff to identify important site issues, establish priorities, and develop planning and design criteria for the master planning process. RGR prepared a series of master plan alternatives and phasing strategies to address the important site issues. The firm also conducted a detailed space planning study to identify present and future space needs and alternative strategies to accommodate these needs.
