WHAT WE DO

We are designers. We bring the spirit of design, which combines inquiry, mental agility, and persistence, to all we do. We are architects, interior designers, furniture and product designers. Our architectural projects have won design awards from the Municipal Art Society of NY, McGraw-Hill NY Construction, the Preservation League of NY State, and the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce; and our product designs are in the Brooklyn Museum. Our design services range from feasibility studies, master planning, to all traditional phases of architectural and design services from preschematic design through construction administration. We regularly develop design standards, guidelines, and brand identity through built work for our clients. Thinking, gathering data and reactions, and exploring options is fundamental to our design approach, and we offer formalized research services to our clients related to design issues. Our research focuses on user groups for buildings, spaces, and products and is approached in a variety of ways including interviews, online investigation, and exploration through a formal prototyping process.

We are fabricators. We bring the perspective of the fabricator, tuned in to issues of constructability, feasibility, process, and tangible results, to all projects, large and small. In our East Williamsburg shop, we build prototypes and fabricate specially designed furniture, millwork, products. We provide prefabrication and installation capabilities, and consultations on these aspects of design. We enhance our own capabilities through a network of artisans and artists all committed to the same high-quality results.

Ultimately, we are collaborators.We collaborate with our clients and with each other. We welcome the input of our colleagues in related disciplines and are dedicated to bringing the benefit of that cross fertilization of ideas, perspective and teamwork to the process, and ultimately to the product.
