New York’s internationally-renowned Margot Fonteyn Academy of Ballet (MFAB) is set to move in new directions with the help of Australian architectural practice, Plus Architecture.

Designing the new home for the famous academy is the first international project for the Melbourne-based firm and is set to be a widely recognised development.

Led by Plus director Ian Briggs and project architect, Mark Schipano, Plus has commenced work on the concept design and envisage that construction will begin late in 2009, with completion expected approximately 18 months later.

Briggs says the brief encompasses a design for the arts, hospitality, residential and commercial, all in the one iconic facility.

The planned multi-level, multi-purpose building will occupy the corner of Union and South Streets in Downtown Preskill, New York.
