SWA Architecture Weekly Project Review

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog post.  The blog where we take a look at different projects that SWA Architecture has worked on.  This week we take a project we have looked at before, 134 W Houston.  Here is a brief refresher in case you missed the previous posts about 134 W Houston.  SWA combined two old four story buildings into one beautiful new eight story residential apartment building with a rooftop and duplex.  The first picture is from our first post about this project.  The rest are what the building looks like today.  



As you can tell by the picture from our last post to what the building looks like now, it has come a long way.  The progression is quite stunning.  The building is now starting to turn into quite a beauty.  In a beautiful location, this would be a pretty amazing place to live. 





As I previously noted, this building is owned by some famous international former soccer players who have done countless projects in the past that have all come out beautiful.  Looks like this project is following the same trend.  When this project is finished we will come back and not only show the outside but also convey what the apartments look like inside.  





That’s it this week for SWA Architecture weekly blog post.  Tune in later this week for a bonus post where we give you an update on another wonderful project of ours.  Don’t forget to give us a follow on Instagram - @swa_architecture

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog post.  In this blog post we take a look at projects that SWA Architecture has worked on in the greater northeast of the United States.  This week we take a deep dive into one of our most beloved apartments we have ever worked on in Brooklyn.




This was a passion project for SWA Architecture.  SWA Architecture are the architects of note on this projects and are also the interior decorators.  Located in Clinton Hill in Brooklyn, this luxurious apartment has a tremendous view of all of Manhattan, and parts of downtown Brooklyn. 


The kitchen is elegant yet prestigious, and features a beautiful island with a beautiful Brazilian quartzide top.  The main room of the apartment an open space with a beautiful table and couch that overlooks all of Manhattan. 



 This apartment has two bedrooms, as you can tell from the pictures below.  The master bedrooms is beautifully furnished and also has a phenomenal view of Manhattan.  


With a giant king sized bed, who wouldn’t want to spend a night here.  Also in the master bedroom there is a walk in closet that only a select few have enough clothes for.  Below is the other bedroom, also with a view of Manhattan.  


What a beautiful apartment.  Whoever lives in here are very fortunate people.  That’s it this week for the SWA Architecture weekly blog post, stay tuned next week for another post.  Also, give us a follow on Instagram - @swa_architecture

SWA Architecture Weekly Blog Post

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog post.  This blog primarily takes a look into projects that SWA Architecture has been a part of.  This week we are going to take a look at what made SWA Architecture what it is today, the sidewalk cafes.  We'll take a little trip around New York City to take a look at some sidewalk cafes SWA Architecture has been a part of.  



SWA Architecture has been a part of over 700 sidewalk cafes coming to life in New York City.  That is not a typo, we have really don’t over 700.  Above you can see a picture of Brick Café on a beautiful summer day.  Located in Astoria at 30-95 33rd Street, Brick Café should be a destination of interested if you’re ever in Astoria. 


Next we take a look at Bistro ten 18 located at 1018 Amsterdam Avenue.  If you are looking for a casual bistro that pleases locals with solid pastas, salads, steaks, burgers & cocktails. 


Let’s take a trip south to Brooklyn and take a look at another spot with a beautiful sidewalk café, Brooklyn Heights Wine Bar & Kitchen.  You can find this gem at 50 Henry Street in Brooklyn.  If you go get ready for a diverse by the glass & bottle list that compliments a beautiful American menu at this low-key spot. 


For our last joint let’s take a turn back into Manhattan to visit Fatbird Southern Kitchen & Bar.  With celeb Chef Cat Cora, you will find various upscale renditions of Southern favorites & mason-jar cocktails.  At 44 9th Avenue, this is a can’t miss spot. 

SWA Architecture does a lot of unique and different projects, but the projects we most frequently are involved with are sidewalk cafes.  Pick a restaurant in New York City with a sidewalk café, we probably are the Architect and expeditor of note.  That’s it this week for the SWA Architecture Weekly blog post, give us a follow on Instagram - @swa_architecture where we have many beautiful pictures.

SWA Architecture Weekly Blog Post

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog post.  For the past couple of years, we have been looking at projects that SWA Architecture has collaborated with.  You have seen many gems from the Opry City Stage, to landmarked buildings to beautiful apartments.  This week we are going to change it up a little bit, and give you a behind the scenes look at the office and people that make the SWA Architecture engine run.




We have two offices, one in Tribeca, Manhattan and the other in Long Island.  As SWA Architecture has grown, the office space has grown as well.  When you are in charge of over 100 projects at one time, the employees need their space to ensure everything is getting covered. 



Meet Steve Wygoda, the President and Founder of SWA Architecture.  With more than 40 years of experience in architecture and design construction, he is the man behind all the beautiful work you have been a witness to.  He holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the City University of New York, and is an affiliated member of the National Council of Historical Preservation, and the American Society of Military Engineers. 


Next we have Sergio Ali, Senior Associate with SWA Architecture.  Mr. Ali is a senior associate at SWA Architecture with more than 14 years of experience in architecture and design construction. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture at New York Institute of Technology, and has worked on both residential and commercial projects.  He has been with SWA since the beginning and has helped SWA grow into the successful machine it is today.



Interesting stuff.  That’s it for this week from the SWA Architecture weekly blog post.  Give us a follow on Instagram - @swa_architecture and check out some older posts.
