We took two floors of the historic 1894 Knickerbocker Telephone Co. building and tranformed them into a studio for the fashion designers of a major American retailer. Working with the solid bones and beautiful cast iron detailing of this SoHo building, we created office spaces, design studios, photography studios and hospitality areas for the men and women responsible for designing the iconic brand’s clothing.
We kept the material palette light, utilizing a spine of glass boxes to create zones within the space. Original cast iron detailing was emphasized in the open work areas with custom millwork created to the fashion designer’s specs.
