Bonus Post

Hello and welcome back with a bonus post.  SWA Architecture is enamored with this location and couldn't wait to show you.   We are again looking at a day care center located uptown in Manhattan.  Below you will see some before and under construction photos.  Don't worry it get's better.

So what did we do with this one?  Like the previous day care center we posted about, SWA Architecture were the architects, interior designers and expeditors for this lavish space.  See the photos below.

The space was at one time home for a local synagogue.  Our client was the Japanese Children's Society and had outgrown their previous locations.  SWA went to this project and created multiple rooms which are able to be combined into a larger room.   This allows for play recitals and to create a large play area.

Last but certainly not least, SWA Architecture designed an outdoor play space for the children to enjoy the hot summer.  That is all we have this week, I hope you enjoyed looking at these day care centers as much as I did.  Stay tuned for next week!

Top Weekly Project from SWA Architecture

Hello and welcome back to the weekly blog post from SWA Architecture where we take an in-depth look at projects that SWA Architecture has worked on.  This week we take a look at one of our first day care centers that SWA has ever been a part of.

Located uptown in Manhattan, SWA were the architects, interior designers, and expediters for this children's day care facility.  Talk about a triple threat!  This is our second day care facility to date.

So here is what we did.  We took an existing office space and redesigned it to accommodate 45 children in a very friendly and secure environment.  Needless to say as you can see it came out wonderfully.  The interior is very uplifting to say the least.

SWA also obtained all the New York City Department of Health approvals.  Thats all for this location.  Stay tuned for a bonus post with yet another day care center!

Top Weekly Projects from SWA Architecture

Hello and welcome back to the weekly blog posts from SWA Architecture.  We are proud to show you this week's selected project, Arby's.  That's right, this week we're all thinking Arby's.  One of our most esteemed clients we're proud to show this project.

This project shown throughout the post is located in Manhattan near Madison Park, a busy part of the city.  We have pictures of the project before SWA Architecture got involved and after we did.  SWA were the architects and expediters.  This is Arby's second location in Manhattan.  SWA has converted two stores in Arby's and added a mezzanine in the rear of this project to increase the seating capacity.

Well thats all for this week.  I am most certainly thinking Arby's and may have to stop by one today.  Stay tuned for more posts to come!

SWA Weekly Blog Post

Hello and welcome back to this weeks blog post from SWA Architecture.  This week we are looking at some at one of our biggest projects we have ever done at SWA Architecture.  This week we are looking at one of the worlds largest and most recognizable franchises, McDonald's.

For a little background, SWA Architecture is the architect and/or expeditor for over 400 locations in New York City, Long Island, Connecticut, Westchester County, Washington DC, Virginia, Delaware and Maryland.  Safe to say we are pretty well connected with McDonalds.

We have been helping McDonald's with their new wave of modernization program both for the exterior and interior of their sites.  McDonald's is really stepping up their game and we are happy to help in any way we can.

Stay tuned, another bonus post will be coming up later this month looking at another recognizable franchise, Arby's.

SWA Architecture Weekly Blog Post!

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog post.  Today we are looking at two sites that are on their way to becoming beautiful.  

The first spot is located at 11 6th Avenue.  As you can tell from the photos above it is not even close to being what we expect it to be but we will get there.  The owner has been in the neighborhood for forty years and this the newest location from him.  Prior to being worked on this spot was a a liquor store for many years but now with the help of SWA Architecture it is being converted to a restaurant/bar lounge.  There will also be an enclosed sidewalk cafe to finish off this beauty.  Pretty exciting!  

Our second location is close by at 86 Delancey. Again, this project is in the early phases of being completed as you can see in the photo below.  It is just a construction site now but look below and you’ll see a bunch of renderings of what this baby will look like.  

This project is the next one in a series of projects SWA has done for this developer.  This will be a 12 story commercial and residential building with spectacular views of the east river and Williamsburg bridge.  The location is in an area of Manhattan that is being transformed as we speak so check it out.  

As you can see this will be one wonderful building.  That is all this week from SWA.  Stay tuned for next week with some amazing new projects!

SWA Architecture Weekly Blog Post

Hello and welcome to a bonus post from SWA Architecture!  In this highly irregular but most welcome bonus post we will be looking at a new building that will be set up at 325 Avenue U in Brooklyn.  That is not a typo we also do projects in Brooklyn, plenty of projects in fact.  Similar to the previous post, below is what the project looks like now.

Also similar to the previous post below is a rendering of what we hope the end result of this project will look like.  It will be for mixed use commercial on the first floor and residential above for eight floors.  There is also a high end penthouse that takes the top two floors.  There is indoor parking for the tenants.  This is our first project with this developer and hope to do more.

Stay tuned for next week, where we take a deep dive into some extraordinary projects.  Only the best for the SWA Architecture weekly blog post!
