Renovating a Historic Landmark for the Boys and Girls Club
Built in 1903, Public School 186 in Harlem, New York, was a beautifully detailed Italian Renaissance Beaux Arts building. In 1970 the school closed, and the building sat empty for over 40 years. Discover how the Boys and Girls Club of Harlem saw the building's enormous potential and gave it the restoration it deserved – including new Pella® windows.
Zach Gordon - Architectural Drafter
What is your architectural background?
I grew up in a construction family, so I got a lot of exposure to the industry working every summer during high school and after college.
What is your role when it comes to working with architectural clients?
I'm dedicated to custom variants, like custom grilles and shapes. I create shop drawings, renderings and building elevations – and work with engineers to ensure the product can be manufactured according to my drawings. It's fun to see what our capabilities are.
Jon Higgins - Architectural Engineer
What services are you most involved in?
Preliminary design drawings, design analysis, 3D printing and testing.
What steps do you take to help insure a client's project is successful?
I do whatever it takes to make their design functional. I'm extremely mindful when it comes to the other products they're using, the weather barriers they face, and product warranties I don't want to negate. Plus, I keep installation at the forefront.

What kind of challenge is your favorite and why?
I love coming up with a solution that no one else would immediately think of. I see a lot of unique challenges, which has prepared me well for curveballs.
What is your favorite kind of architecture?
Contextual. I love when a structure understands the context of where it lives and can blend contemporary and historical elements. A great example is the Chanel boutique in the Netherlands. I could stand there looking at it for three hours – it's that impactful.
