Great design is only part of the story. Great execution brings it to life. We advance the state of the art while realizing elegant design at a broad variety of scales. Our depth of specialty experience and expertise in fabrication and coordination through bidding and construction is demonstrated in many successful projects. Design of an innovative fabric laminated façade system that filters UV-light provided privacy for worshipers at the Lincoln Square Synagogue. Careful planning and phasing allowed for continuous occupancy at 5 Manhattan West, enabling the owners to realize value from their assets even during a complicated renovation. Successful navigation of the New York City Landmarks Preservation requirements cleared the way for the Hybrid Urban House. At the Madaras Chapel located in the Harghita mountains of Transylvania we successfully reconciled the use of digital and parametric design technologies with local materials and construction techniques, reflecting the strong sense of craft and culture of the place.
Drawing inspiration from the natural world, we develop ideas broadly, starting with the greater expression and focusing progressively in towards a one-to-one scale. We push the boundaries of space and attend to minute details, heightening perceptions and fashioning a truly tactile sensuality.
We provide comprehensive technology driven design and consulting services, taking projects from the initial idea through the final stages of construction documentation. We employ a rational streamlined comprehensive process to deliver high quality buildings and spaces, custom construction assemblies and luxuriously crafted products.
