Galerie Gmurzynska

Introducing Galerie Gmurzynska: Conversion of an Upper East Side townhouse into a private art gallery. The project transforms a historic building in New York's museum mile to allow for new commercial and cultural use while preserving its historical meaning and integrity. The space is filled with professional acoustics and natural light that spills into the glass elevator.

Architect: Lang Architecture

low voltage cabling plan

Techmenity delivered a low-voltage cabling plan + equipment placement plans and elevations.

Techmenity was brought on by Lang Architecture in the early planning stages which meant that we were able to efficiently implement a Future-Ready Digital Foundation. 


Typically, new construction is the most ideal scenario for planning the Digital Foundation, but down-to-the-stud renovations also provide fertile ground for innovation and lots of flexibility. There’s a tremendous need in NYC specifically, to bring existing buildings up to speed in order for them to compete and to meet rising expectations from residents and tenants, and demands for sustainability.

Future-Ready Planning:

Alongside the architect, we were able to help the owner recognize the value of investing in the infrastructure up-front in order to make their property more attractive to future occupants and/or owners.

1. Delivered a low-voltage cabling plan + equipment placement plans and elevations
3. Provided future-proof cabling runs inside of walls for easy access to new features and room reconfigurations
4. Designed an AV/IT rack that provided 9 Zones of Sonos Audio to over 20 Sonance invisible speakers and James small aperture speakers, firewall security, and 13 Ruckus WAPs
5. Oversaw the design and installation of Lutron Homeworks lighting control system and custom Meljac faceplates
6. Coordinated with elevator contractor and provided Meljac custom elevator call buttons
7. Coordinated Internet service from the street into the MDF along with phone lines for elevator safety
8. Managed the work of DGA security for all life safety and alarm systems
9. Managed Target security and installation of Siedel intercom with Brivo access control 

* Due to long lag times between specification and implementation, Techmenity needed to update the technical product specs to reflect new models and feature sets. Accounting for this design-to-construction lag time & technology upgrade cycles is yet another reason why it’s essential to have a TechGC on your project. Before commissioning it is critical that the project has someone to verify that the specified systems will meet the latest standards.
