Invited by the Nantucket Historical Association, NYSID students designed two rooms in the Jethro Coffin House, the oldest house on the island. Recently, BFA students Faith Hoops and Emily Kent, and MFA-1 students Tom Elka and Larissa Moutrier, along with NYSID dean Ellen Fisher, surveyed the building and the area’s design resources in preparation.
