reimagines the city.

converts edges into centers

Empire Stores

Empire Stores, a series of Civil War-era coffee warehouses abandoned for over a half-century on the Brooklyn waterfront, formed a barrier isolating the community from its waterfront. The award-winning design features a dramatic public courtyard slicing through the building, reuniting community and waterfront, combining old and new, and adding a Waterfront Museum and rooftop Public Park.

creates new visions for public parks

The Tanks at Bushwick Inlet Park

Currently an abandoned and polluted tank farm, STUDIO V is transforming the waterfront site into a new model for park design:  repurposing industrial artifacts to create resilient and innovative public spaces. The design reinvents the site’s history, transforming ten former oil tanks into interconnected gardens, performance spaces, art installations, and an oyster growing habitat.

transforms a factory into dining destination

Morimoto ASIA

Once an unpromising industrial shed, STUDIO V transformed this space into a soaring 500 seat restaurant for internationally renowned “Iron Chef” Masaharu Morimoto. This award-winning design features vertically overlapping dining spaces, bars, outdoor terraces, and lounges unified by one of the longest continuous bars in the world:  the 270-foot digitally fabricated “ribbon bar.”

reconnects waterfronts and communities

Halletts Point

Halletts Point consisted of vacant warehouses and crumbling factories until STUDIO V’s urban designs began transforming it into a dynamic mixed use community.  Innovative designs for five clients integrate new affordable and luxury housing, social housing infill, public schools, waterfront parks, a blackwater treatment plant, water taxi, and set new standards for resiliency for NYC

defines new forms for new uses

Yonkers Raceway

An extraordinary wooden pavilion graced Yonkers “Hilltop Racetrack” before being tragically demolished in the 1970s. STUDIO V’s architecture reinvents this historic structure through contemporary form, structure, materials, and lighting. A dramatic steel grid-shell grows from the hillside to contrasting an architecture of perforated zinc and curved facade of suspended glass.
