Megan Grehl is an international design collective founded in 2014 that specializes both in architectural and interior design, with experience ranging from boutique commercial spaces to bespoke residences.
Our projects are designed through a holistic approach, with both our architecture and interior design teams working closely together. We strive to find the perfect marriage between interior and exterior through the discovery of a unified language for each project. Our practice is grounded in sculptural gestures, unexpected proportions, and layered textures that seduce the mind, body, and soul.
Collectively, our seven-person studio is proficient in English, Mandarin, French, Spanish, German and Korean. We pride ourselves in working closely with our clients and meeting their deliverables, with having completed projects in Shanghai, New York, Los Angeles, and Paris, we are eager to bring our skills and talent to other locations, domestic and abroad.
Megan Grehl recently completed a gut renovation in the highly esteemed Apthorp Building in the Upper West Side in New York City, and is currently working on projects in San Francisco, Washington D.C., New York, and Milan.
