Sage and Coombe worked with the Noguchi Museum in Long Island City, Queens for more than a decade to renovate and modernize the historic building in three phases, affording the museum accessibility, allowing it to remain open year-round, and bringing it to the rigorous standards of contemporary museums – all while maintaining the unique character of the space. The renovation encompassed all areas of the, museum building and garden, with construction on the final phase completed in Spring 2016.
