SWA Architecture Weekly Blog Post

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog post.  This blog is primarily focused on giving you a look into all the wonderful projects SWA Architecture has and is working on.  This week we have a special treat for you.

This week we take a look at all the projects that SWA Architecture and Alta Marea Group have worked on together.  Before we get to the restaurants, here is a brief synopsis of Alta Marea Group.  Founded in 2009, by Ahmass Fakahany and chef/partner Michael White, Alta Marea Group is a world-renowned hospitality company, currently with 15 restaurants around the world. 

Marea 



Osteria Morini



Ristorante Morini




SWA Architecture has been a part of 5 of them in New York City.  The five are Marea, Osteria Morini, Ai Fiori, Nicoletta and Ristorante Morini.  SWA Architecture were the Architects, planners and expediters for these projects.  We also obtained the place of assembly permits for these beautiful restaurants.  SWA also did the sidewalk cafes for Nicoletta and Ristorante Morini.  These are scatted throughout Manhattan and each one has a unique menu and is a must go to spot if you are in New York City.  Take a look at some pictures of them above and below.

SWA Architecture Weekly Blog Post

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog post.  For all of you who are new to this blog here we take a look at all different projects that SWA Architecture has worked on.  Last week we took at a bunch of projects that didn’t go to completion, this week we take a look at two houses that came out beautiful. 

The first house we are taking a look at is located in Lawrence, Long Island.  This is a vacation house for one of our clients.  If my vacation house looked like that, I would go on a lot of vacations.  SWA was the architects, designers and expediters of this breathtaking house. 



Next, we take a look at a house in Point Lookout.  This was designed for Steve Wygoda’s former student at NYU, where Steve taught as an associate adjunct professor for 15 years.  Steve Wygoda is the President and Founder of SWA Architecture.  So yeah, he’s kind of a big deal.  Back to the project.  What makes this house special and unique is that this is a “upside-down house”.  Meaning that the living room is on the top floor, maximizing the views.  Pretty spectacular.  SWA Architecture did the works and were the architects, designers and expediters. 




When SWA Architecture is a part of making a house, we really bring care and creativity to maximize the space we are working on.  That’s it this week for the SWA Architecture weekly blog post.  We are undergoing a website renovation so be on the lookout for that, and again, if you don’t follow us on Instagram take a look - -@swa_architecture
