This stairwell is the first design element seen upon entering this apartment located in the Flatiron district in Manhattan. Our design intent was to create a striking design element that would set the stage for the rest of the architecture in the space. Constructed of entirely blackened steel, the staircase has a light and heavy feeling simultaneously. It is lifted off of the floor and pulled away from the wall to allow to express its lightness and is given its mass through its color of blackened steel.
The staircase was fabricated by a Metal Fabricator local to the New York Metropolitan area. Produce created the design for this staircase, oversaw the fabrication and installation. The staircase was brought into the space in three pieces and welded on site.
The Cue Art Foundation is a visual center located in the Chelsea area of Manhattan. Produce Design Studio was asked to create spaces for an art gallery, artist studio and an office. The space was previously used as an industrial storage space. There were remnants of old water wells and industrial steel flooring that we kept to emphasize the original character of the space.
188 Nelson street is a brownstone residence located in Carrol Gardens, Brooklyn. This was a 3 family building that we converted into a 2 family. Our clients asked Produce Design Studio to create a living space that catered to their needs and created a modern living space. The hearth of the home became a central lightwell which connects all the living spaces of the home. A staircase floats within the lightwell, making the hearth a place that bridges the natural path of the sun with the path of circulation of its inhabitants.
This project was a renovation to an old industrial space in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Produce Design Studio was asked to create a space that would act primarily as an office space but could easily be transformed into an entertainment space. With a ground floor, mezzanine and basement the space is easily divided into three zones. The ground floor functions as a reception area and social area for employees. The mezzanine is the work area with open desks and conference rooms. The basement level has a second reception area and recording studios.
The renovation work was done to a former high school building rezoned and divided into separate condos. Produce Design Studio was initially asked to create a living area that incorporated the inherent warmth in wood, our solution was to clad the walls of the bedroom and kitchen area in 4” wide Maple boards. Stairs, Floors and Cabinery were also clad in the same Maple boards creating a “wooden womb” for the client.
The 50th street penthouse renovation is light, modern and airy. Bleached Oak, artistic glass and Portugese stone are some of the materials incorporated in this beautiful modern design. Located in the Hells Kitchen area of Manhattan, this penthouse apartment takes in striking views of its surroundings. Produce Design Studio used artistic glass to clad the cabinetry to allow some of those views to reflected into the space, giving the illusion of the exterior becoming part of the interior.
