SWA Architecture Weekly Blog

Hello and welcome back to the one and only SWA Architecture weekly blog.  The blog like no other where we take an in-depth look at projects the SWA Architecture firm has done.  Last week we changed it up a little bit and gave you a look at a zoning study.  See last weeks post to get all the fun details on that.





This location is going to be a Buy Buy Baby.  This is the daughter company to Bed Bath and Beyond.  Buy Buy Baby is an American chain of stores that sell clothing, strollers and other items for use with infants and young children.  It operates 135 stores across the United States and Canada.  It was founded in 1996 by brothers Richard and Jeffrey Feinstein.




SWA Architecture are the architects, landmark preservation architects and expediters for Buy Buy Baby.  This is our first time with this client and hope to do many more projects.  We were referred to this project by a big time general contractor.

SWA Architecture Weekly Blog

Hello and welcome back to an all new fresh SWA Architecture blog coming your way!  Happy new year to you all and we want to welcome you into this new year with a wonderful project!  For all you first timers who decided 2020 is the time to start reading this blog what we like to do is look at projects that SWA Architecture has been a part of in the greater northeast area of the United States.  Most project are in New York City but we do venture out of the city from time to time.







This project is a zoning study for a new ground up development site.  A zoning study is a basic analysis of what can be built to on a property to its maximum size and use.  SWA performs these studies routinely and often when a client is looking at a new development site.




SWA Architecture not only did the zoning study but are responsible for the architecture, design and expediting, should this project move past the zoning study.  We have worked with this specific client several times before.  As always, the biggest compliment we get from our clients is when they use us for another project!



That's it for this weeks SWA Architecture Weekly Blog.  Stay tuned next week for some wonderful projects to come your way in 2020!  Also, give us a follow on instagram - @swa_architecture to see all the wonderful projects we have!

Hello and welcome back to the one and only SWA Architecture weekly blog.  We are coming to you fresh this holiday season with some great posts to come your way.  If you haven't seen our latest posts I would highly recommend going back and checking them out one you are done with this one.





This week we are updating you on the Rivergate complex.  Located at 401 E 34th street, we have seen this project multiple times but now it is complete, so we had to stop by.  Last time we saw this was in April, and still had some ways to go.  As we previously stated, they have hired us before but this time they hired us for this plaza which has been completely renovated.




In more specific architecture terms, SWA architecture is responsible for all the expediting for this project.  It was in coordination with another architecture firm.  This is our third project collaborating with UDR, a national company.  As you can tell by the photos, it came out great and we are thrilled to be able to show you the finished product.



That's it for this weeks SWA Architecture weekly blog.  Have a happy holiday and stay tuned for a possible bonus post to come your way later this week.  As always, give us a follow on instagram - @swa_architecture to see all the wonderful projects we have worked on.

SWA Architecture Weekly Blog

Hello and welcome back to a special Friday rolling SWA Architecture blog. For all you first timers what we like to do here is look at all the wonderful projects that SWA Architecture has been a part of.  Earlier this week we took a look at a wonderful project well on its way to being complete.






This post we turn our attention to a project a project we last looked at in May.  This space is being made into an interactive theatre by the tenant, Particle Ink.  Particle Ink is an immersive mixed reality experience like no other.  As the tenant they will connect this space into a theatre.  The theatre will be located at 771 9th Ave, but in reality this is two buildings connected at the rear.  One located on 9th avenue and one located at 52nd street.






SWA Architecture are the architects, interior designers, designers, co-consultants and expediters for the owner.  This is our second project with this client.  The first one was a building they own at 1650 broadway.  This is being designed with the Particle Ink design and production team.  In addition, SWA designed two apartments on the top floor of the 52nd street building.  If you take a look at the photos from May compared to now you can see how much we have improved!
