The Studio is made up of one principal and two architectural designers. We work in one room, with vast windows looking out toward the skyline of Manhattan. We work hard and keep a healthy 9-6pm schedule throughout the year – deadlines being the occasional exception. The Principal tries to get the staff out of the office to jobsites, meetings, or education opportunities each week to connect staff to the visceral aspects of the discipline. Quarterly studio trips to Museums, tours, or lectures around the region.

Where we are located

We are located in the Studebaker building in Crown Heights, one of Brooklyn’s great creative hubs that is home to photographers, filmmakers, architects, the HQ of Brooklyn Flea, and the Berg’n beer hall. The building is just between Dean and Bergen Streets just west of Franklin Avenue, a dense collection of restaurants and bars that affords great access to Citi Bike stations, the C,S,2,3,4, and 5 subway lines as well as numerous buses. There are private bike racks located in lobby of the ground floor of the building as well as outdoor racks on both sides of the building. Numerous tenants offer discounts on their services (yoga, wine-tasting) to the building.
