For the purveyor of high-quality, authentic New York City food, their expansion to the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City was an opportunity to create a new bakery and retail flagship. The project is located on two levels in a historic 19th century building on Columbus Avenue around the corner from the fabled Dakota Apartments and Central Park. The design emerged as a celebration of textures and color intended to complement the gastronomic delicacies on display. During the design process, probes revealed long-hidden, original historic architectural elements many which were restored for reuse in the space. These included an eye-catching decorative tin ceiling and beautiful interior cast iron columns. Brick walls were revealed. Outside, cast iron storefront trim and rustic brownstone exterior walls were all uncovered and restored. Modern additions of the design included surfaces and furnishings made of black handcrafted steel and white oak. Black subway tile form the back wall of the service area while the seating area is an oasis of minimalist, crafted lighting and furnishings. The flooring is a sturdy, neutral porcelain tile throughout. The interior includes a gold-leaf mural by the artist David Bender. Located in the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District, the project received approval from the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission. Most importantly, since its opening, the locale has become a neighborhood destination.

When VOX Media needed a new home for their NYC headquarters, Fogarty Finger helped them relocate to Midtown Manhattan. Open ceilings enlarge the main work areas and highlight the board-formed slabs of this classic Mid-Century building. The high contrast palette accommodates multiple social media brands, while bolstering enthusiasm and visual interest for broadcasting.

Located in a historic industrial loft building in downtown Manhattan, Exerblast is a family-fitness facility that synthesizes interactive technologies and physical obstacles with the use of dynamic spatial organization. The 6,000 square foot space covering two floors is divided into multiple zones that include a rock wall room, a core-strengthening ball room, an open room with surfaces for projected media, a multipurpose, party room, and administrative offices. Connecting all of these elements is a blue, circuit-like painted design called the Power Path, which directs the flow of activities throughout the space.

Located in Manhattan’s Hudson riverfront Meatpacking District, the hotel responds to its context through contrast: sculptural piers, whose forms clearly separate the building from the orthogonal street grid, raise the building fifty-seven feet off the street, and allow the horizontally-scaled industrial landscape to pass beneath it and natural light to penetrate to the street.

With these two proposals for a bar in the East Village in Manhattan, we employed a striking silhouette on the faÃ§ade to bring presence to the space on the street. With House Bar, we used painted, perforated MDF panels to continue the house profile on the interior, which terminates in a DJ booth at the end of the room. Lighting filters through the perforations to provide ambient illumination.

The Inverted Warehouse/Townhouse is an addition and renovation of a Tribeca loft building. The existing structure, a traditional New York warehouse covers the entire lot, consuming the exterior space traditional in domestic construction. Inverting the conventional townhouse organization recovers this coveted ground. Dissipating energy into the dark center of this converted warehouse, three double story voids animate the missing “garden” of the townhouse providing light, air, and visual contemplation. Admitting light and townhouse “garden” uses, these new spaces provide the structure for domestic life. Exterior court, reading court, and playroom are suspended into the void. Conceived as new construction built upside down into an existing building, they dissipate a radiant energy into the host.
