Living with Art

Since our earliest projects, we have worked with art and artists to design spaces for making and viewing art. Many of our early projects were live/work spaces for painters, photographers, and sculptors; these spaces housed their work and their personal art collections.

Perry Street Loft No. 1 is 50% residence, 30% gallery, and 20% artist’s studio. It is nonetheless unified by a white and gray palette and a plan that flows freely. See the project

Artist friends became clients, and our artist-clients led to more clients and artist-clients. Our sensitive approach to design, and sympathy with creative people and processes, has led, to this day, to a practice based on like-minded collaboration.

A collection largely focused on postwar Italian modernism at the Upper East Side Townhouse No. 1 enriches a family’s home with personality and history. See the project

When we design spaces for art collectors, we design for the collector and their sensibilities rather than just a specific piece of art.

Our designs are tailored to center art at the heart of daily life.

Contemporary art pervades the West Chelsea Apartment. See the project

At 432 Park, a few key pieces, meticulously arranged in the space, complement breathtaking views of the city. See the project

We are fortunate to do work for clients who have an interest in art. The setting can be a beautiful foil for a collection that can evolve and change over time.
