Founded in 2014 in New York City, we specialize in high-end design in both large-scale and small-scale projects, often incorporating our own custom structures, including furniture and product designs.
Our projects are designed through a holistic approach with both our architecture and interior design teams working closely together. Our designs are grounded in conceptual forms that often frame and emphasize statement moments experienced from the exterior and interior spaces. Whether we are designing a ground-up building or renovating a kitchen, we are grounded in sculptural gestures, simple silhouettes, and layered textures. We pride ourselves in working closely with our clients and meeting their deliverables.
Collectively, our seven person studio is proficient in English, Mandarin, French, Spanish, German and Korean. We have completed projects in Shanghai, New York, Los Angeles, and Paris, and are eager to bring our skills and talent to other locations, domestic and abroad. The team takes pride in having varied international backgrounds, which informs our work and also our clientele.
