Since 1995, CWB Architects has been designing residential and commercial spaces throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, Westchester, New Jersey, and the Eastern End of Long Island. To respond to increased client demand for interior design and decoration services once the architecture of a project is completed, we opened a full-service Interior Design department in 2005. We are currently working on both residential and commercial Interiors projects.
Our strength lies in residential architecture adapted for modern living and commercial spaces crafted for collaboration and productivity. Equally adept in historic renovation and modern design, we harness our substantial practical experience and sophisticated design sensibility to arrive at imaginative solutions for our clients. We strive to strike a balance between economic feasibility and our clients' needs and tastes, and in the end, create spaces that seem effortless.
As a mid-sized firm, we have the ability to provide daily, hands-on project management at the principal level. In this way we cultivate a productive dialog with clients and are able to execute on the quick turnaround they often require.
CWB Architects is located in Brooklyn's historic waterfront district in the heart of DUMBO. Our collaborative team of 16 consists of three principals, four licensed architects, two interior designers, and assorted draftspersons, model builders, and administrative staff. Together our office designs apartments, lofts, row houses, and suburban and country houses, as well as office and retail locations -- and select institutional spaces including libraries, theaters, and schools.
We maintain relationships with qualified consulting engineers, both structural and mechanical, who are well-versed in the systems required for most new construction types. In addition, we have extensive experience in the renovation of landmark buildings, with particular strength in row houses.
Our work has been covered by BusinessWeek, Metropolitan Home, Interior Design, Fine Homebuilding, Interiors & Sources, The New York Times, New York Daily News, and HGTV, among others. In addition, our projects have been featured in The New American Dream: Living Well in Small Houses, published by Monacelli Press, The Kitchen Idea Book and Home Workspace Idea Book, published by Taunton Press, and Essential Home published by Ryland, Peters, Small Publishers.
