NEW YORK: As the culmination of a nearly 20-year-long odyssey, the Lower East Side Girls Club has added a new component to its year-old Center for Community. A classic Airstream Trailer (circa 1958) has been repurposed as a teaching, production and recording studio for LESGC’s WGRL Internet Radio Station and Recording Arts Program. Prominently displayed in a second story window in LESGC’s recently completed $20 million sustainably-built 12 story building at 101 Avenue D, the studio was designed and configured by Walters Storyk Design Group cofounder/architect/ acoustician John Storyk.

This studio was built in the heart of an artistic neighborhood, where street walls and galleries offer a great variety of expressions and occupational forms. As it is situated in a place marked by frequent floods, its creation offered many challenges.

The building is situated in the center of the plot, respecting the limits for construction and plot ratio.
The house rises as a single body. Its shape is influenced by physical and morphological conditions and by the program.
The initial idea of the project is to expand the building up inside the parcel and surrounding existing trees in order to preserve the maximum possible trees; later the shape was adapted to the program, to acquire the final setting.

The project is for a secondary dwelling which will be used as an art studio and home office. The project is characterized by its high level external aesthetic detailing. A black glazed brick is chosen as the base building material with a cedar wall paneling system used as a secondary decorative cladding. The timber paneling is both decorative and functional with it being used as rotating timber shutters over the northern level 1 window which reveal splashes of colour and tone in a rotated position. The paneling arrangement acts as a ribbon, wrapping and shrouding the building whilst providing notions of flow and direction through its fluid and curvilinear arrangement and articulation.

We renovated the old steel building, originally used as a factory / office, into a workspace for an artist to use for the next several decades. In order to improve the building performance, we applied fireproof coating and structural reinforcement. The construction of the original building was based on the value of “quantity over quality.” As a result, you can see various gaps and distortions all over the building after 40 years, which are made even more clearly visible by newly applied coating and finishes. We intend to transform these gaps and distortions into unique spaces where one encounters unexpected experiences.

Architects and interior designers are amongst the biggest supporters of lighting design. They have a clear understanding of how lighting can enhance a space they have created. They also appreciate the consequences of poor lighting.
And so it was when award winning lighting consultancy PointOfView was briefed by architects Bates Smart to light their new Sydney Studio located in a 1940’s built, art deco designed, former offices of the 20th Century Fox Film Corporation.
