About Us

Founded in 2004, RSVP Architecture Studio PLLC is an emerging firm dedicated to a collaborative design process that explores the boundaries between architecture, art and the environment. The studio's design process is intimately connected with exploiting the qualities of materials. This approach encompasses using conventional construction products in new ways as well as finding new use for non-traditional building elements like empty wine bottles or coffee beans. Since its inception, RSVP has completed a diverse body of work consistent with its goal of achieving quality design within all scales and sectors of our built environment. Commercial projects have included large office interiors as well as retail boutique spaces and restaurants. For residential clients, RSVP has completed interior renovations, built additions and most recently large scale new construction projects. In addition to conventional built work, RSVP has worked with a number of artists including Jean Shin, Ben Rubin,Pierre Huyghe and Jo Yarrington on large scale public art commissions. Our involvement on these projects has included everything from producing proposal images to full project management. Principal Brian Ripel has also worked collaboratively on a number of art installations with the artist Jean Shin. RSVP's work has been published in the New York Times, Interior Design Magazine, A+U, Architect Magazine, The Architect's Newspaper, Surface Magazine and numerous other periodicals. The firm received a Best of Year Merit Award from from Interior Design Magazine in 2008 for their Root Hill Café design. In partnership with Himma Architecture, RSVP was awarded a 2008 AIA Merit Award for work on Ridge House located in Aodi, Taiwan. RSVP was recently included in the exhibition NY/Berlin Dialogues at the Center for Architecture in New York City. Brian's work in collaboration with the artist Jean Shin has been exhibited and commissioned internationally at venues including: The Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington; Galerie Eric Dupont in Paris, France; Art in General in New York, NY; Smack Mellon Gallery in Brooklyn, NY; and The Dorsky Gallery in Long Island City, NY.
