Time to Shift Gears: 5 Design Firms Reimagine Their Own Studios
Design firms reimagine their own studios:
1. Firm: VeenendaalCave
Standout: Staffers from two venues came together amid local icons and mid-century classics on a full floor in a Class A tower.
2. Firm: Roger Ferris + Partners
Site: Westport, Connecticut
Standout: A facade in zinc, cypress, and stucco gives a suburban ground-up building a distinctly urban flair.
3. Firm: TPG Architecture
Site: New York
Standout: Rather than typical rows of desks, the two-level layout emphasizes alternative and collaborative work areas.
4. Firm: Perkins + Will
Site: Los Angeles
Standout: A 25-foot-long worktable, wrapped in reused MDF, makes an immediate impact, thanks to the glass wall at the entry.
5. Firm: Rossetti
Standout: In a 1920’s bank with a 1950’s addition, the contemporary touches start with the reception area’s charred lumber paneling.
