This 1,900 SF loft in the heart of Tribeca was the painting studio of abstract expressionist Barnett Newman. Daylight from one hundred feet of windows fills the space. Our intention to preserve and enhance the essential character of this historic loft — while crafting within it a domestic space for a family with a young child – relied on a sense of openness and light. Operable panels of prismatic glass configure to create either dramatic openness or total privacy. Custom mahogany and bronze panels enhance the natural breadth and depth of the loft. A state-of-the-art cook’s kitchen and French limestone bathrooms make this space equally suited for dramatic entertaining and intimate daily living.
The Cincinnati Art Museum consists of a collection of historical buildings that were added over the past century. The complex and shattered structure of the building gave cause for a thorough renovation and extension. The concept offers a museum that has clear and separate spaces, attractive to exhibit different types of art plus a pleasant working environment for all employees. The existing building presents itself in smaller “en suite” galleries that are perfect to expose paintings and other hanging exhibitions.

For nearly a century, The New School has been at the forefront of progressive education, with design and social research driving approaches to studying the issues of our time, from democracy and urbanization, to technology, sustainability, and globalization. Over the past 15 years, The New School has built on this legacy to grow into a major degree-granting university, with nearly 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students. But, in recent years, as the school outgrew its longtime home in New York’s Greenwich Village and found its real estate holdings spread across the city, from the Financial District to the Upper West Side, this pedagogical model proved challenging to maintain without the physical plant to support it. The University Center both supports and furthers this model through its innovative design and responds to the school’s increasing demand for state-of-the-art, interdisciplinary spaces.

This 8-unit townhouse development occupies a well located site in the emerging Logan Square neighborhood northwest of downtown Chicago, just two blocks from a major train station. The open floor plans and flexibility of the interiors reflect a sense of simplicity and respond to the needs of contemporary living. The exterior strategy uses fiber cement lap siding and large metal window projections in a composition that retains a sense of a coherent urban block while marking each home as unique.
