Leroy Street Studio is driven by a passion for building, pursued at every scale: in each project’s conception, details, and method of construction. At the core of the Studio’s work is the pursuit of a collaborative approach to the design and realization of projects. LSS has three branches:
The Architecture Studio: Our work is process--rather than image-driven. Each project, inspired by its particular conditions; program, context, detail and material relationships suggests a unique solution. This is reflected in the varied architectural expression of our buildings. Our studio pursues a deep understanding of all facets of the process of making intelligent, efficient and elegant buildings. We incorporate this research in the execution of our work.
The Construction Company: BLDG was founded to build projects designed by the Studio, and to avail studio members and clients of direct access to the construction process. By assuming greater responsibility for project delivery, we are able to collaborate directly with the subcontractors who build our projects, to refine our design, to experiment with alternative solutions cost effectively.
The Community Workshop: LSS founded Hester Street Collaborative to work with community groups on neighborhood parks and playgrounds, affordable housing projects, community centers and public schools. HSC has developed a process that enables community members to participate in envisioning, designing and building elements to transform their neighborhoods.
