The Queens Hospital EMS station was commissioned by the design excellence initiative process implemented by the New York City Department of Design and Construction, for the Fire Department of New York City.
Kathryn Dean, Principal for Dean/Wolf Architects explains the design by staying “I am interested in the capacity for architecture to convey identity and meaning through emotional resonance. I believe this happens through the impact of materials and form coming together in a particular place… In order to understand the building, it is important to understand two departure points: First, the building was commissioned shortly after 9/11. Second, when I work, I often build intuitive paper models to investigate ideas. When I received the commission, I started making these models. After several more rational schemes, the double horizontal bars emerged. It took me a bit of thought to realize why this felt right. They were my own deep emotional response to the fallen towers.”

Highline Stages, previously known as Ceco Studios, is a photo / film studio and events space in the Meatpacking district of New York City.
With 14,500 square feet and entrances on West 14th and West 15th Streets, the space previously housed large trucks and associated equipment related to film and production. The owner decided to rebrand the space as one that could be leased out for large events and filming. The unusually tall ceiling height and easy truck access from the street are a primary feature. EOA stripped the interior of all extraneous materials to expose its original character, providing a clean canvas for any variety of events and photo-shoots while still reflecting the inherent industrial fabric of the building. When the large steel doors that divide the space are open, a view through the entire block is revealed. The entries on both streets are designed to accommodate trucks while at the same time providing a layer of privacy and control to for private events. A new cafe bar is a place for cast and crews to relax and features reclaimed wood and blackened steel. Industrial lighting fixtures used on film sets have been re-purposed and integrated in a variety of ways throughout the space. Upstairs EOA created offices and work areas for the managers of Highline Stages with a continuation of the industrial aesthetic below. EOA also carved out smaller studio spaces to provide the client with additional opportunities to expand their offerings. The entire project is designed to provide the maximum flexibility to the clients of Highline Stages while also providing the perfect space for a variety of creative events to take place.
EOA worked with the New York City Landmarks Commission as well as the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation on the renovation which included incorporating a glass garage door at the street level, Image Courtesy © EOA/Elmslie Osler Architect

Within an empty 10,000 Sq. Foot Ground floor space, STUDIOSC was commissioned to envision a creative co-working office in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The concept was to create a refined working environment using materials that would normally be considered trash. The old exterior factory windows that were replaced,were re-purposed to create dividing walls and become interior light sources in the main open desk & conference room area. Working with Roguebuilt, we were able to amass off-cuts of OSB boards that would typically be thrown out or recycled, cut and dyed them on site and created most of the of the delineating elements within the space; entry ceiling, kitchen dividing beam, back wall mosaic wall, kitchen wall accents, and reception desk.

Our goal in renovating this penthouse duplex for a young bachelor was to maximize the impact of the light and views that the penthouse floor-through configuration afforded. The existing apartment had terraces on both levels but the windows and interior partitions limited the impact of this exterior exposure on the interior spaces.
