SWA Architecture Weekly Blog

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog.  The blog unlike any other, where we take an inside view into how projects and what projects are being completed by SWA Architecture in the greater Northeast area.  Today we are hitting you with a bonus post to end the week on a high.  If you didn't see our post yesterday go check it out when your done with this one!





Today we are looking at a Census building located in Brooklyn.  This company is part of the General Services Administration or GSA for short and the US Census Bureau.  As you can tell by the photos this project is still has some ways to go before it is ready to be open.  There are actually two locations being constructed, the other in the Bronx.  SWA Architecture are the architects, expediters and planners for both locations.




For those of you who are unaware of the Census Bureau is, here is your brief lesson of the day.  The Census Bureau's mission is to serve as the nation's leading provider of quality data about its people and economy.  Every ten years a new survey is sent to the people of our nation to fill out so they can update all the data to be the most accurate.  The next census will be in 2020.




Well that's it this week for the bonus post from the SWA Architecture weekly blog.  We hope you learned something and hope you have a wonderful weekend.  Also, as we always like to remind you, follow us on instagram and see a comprehensive picture list of all the posts we have done - @swa_architecture

SWA Architecture Weekly Blog

Hello and welcome to the SWA Architecture blog.  The blog where we explore some beautiful projects that SWA Architecture has been a part of.  This week is no different.  In fact, this week we take a look at a project just beginning.



Located at 2262 Frederick Douglas Boulevard, this project is so much so in the infancy stage that all we have so far are drawings and renderings.  We are in what is called the design phase.  As you can see from the renderings we are giving a variety of beautiful options.  When all is said and done, this will be a mixed use commercial and residential ground up building.  Exciting stuff!



SWA Architecture were hired to be the designers, architects and expediters.  This is the first time we have worked with these clients with this development and we hope to be a part of many more beautiful projects with them after this one.




That's it this week for the SWA Architecture weekly blog.  We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.  We will periodically check in on this project as it progresses giving you a first hand experience in how a project is developed to completion.  Also, give us a follow on instagram if you haven't already - @swa_architecture

SWA Architecture Weekly Blog

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog.  We are very excited to bring you a special bonus post giving you an update on 4 St Marks.  We looked at this spot last month, but so much has been done that we had to show it again.





A brief refresher on this bad boy.  This spot is also know as the Hamilton House.  Constructed in the East Village in 1833.  A glorious year.  It was designated to a landmark building in 2004.  Another glorious year.




SWA Architecture are the architects, designers, expediters and landmark applicants for this building.  we have two floors for retail, a rear addition, we inserted a new residential floor in the rear (6 total apartments), a curved balcony at parlor level, and a complete restoration of the facade including brick work, stone work, windows, doors and slate roof.



This is the fourth time looking at the place and as you can tell it is very close to being completed.  In fact, we are told it will be done in about a month so we will certainly show all of you the completed project.  Take a look at the previous posts of this project to really get a sense of what is has become.  We are very proud of this project and eager to see it done.


That's it this week for the bonus post from SWA.  Stay tuned next week for some amazing projects.  Also, give us a follow on instagram - @swa_architecture

SWA Architecture Weekly Blog

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog post.  This blog is unique in the sense that we take an architectural look at projects that SWA Architecture has been a part of.  We do all sorts of projects ranging from sidewalk cafes to restaurants to bars to even hotels.  Most of our projects are in New York but we have done projects all over the greater Northeast area of the United States.






This week we are taking a look at a project that has the same ownership group as the project we did last week.  If you haven't read last week's post take a look, we covered Bourbon St Bar and Grille.  This week we are taking a look at Legends, located at 6 W. 33rd Street in Manhattan.  Legends is a classy spot with elaborate interiors including vaulted ceilings, dark-stained pine, cushioned booths, and a low-lit, folded napkin restaurant.  Legends is known for hosting great crowds for English Premiere league soccer games as well as other sporting events.





SWA Architecture is responsible for the architecture, designers, planners and expediters for this location.  Exactly like the other Allied Management spot we looked at last week.  We thoroughly enjoy working with them and look forward to future projects with them.






That's it this week for the SWA Architecture weekly blog post.  Stay tuned for a possible bonus post coming later this week.  Also, give us a follow on instagram and get our following up - @swa_architecture

SWA Architecture Weekly Blog

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog.  The blog where we take a look at various projects SWA Architecture has been a part of.  This week we have a spooktacular bar for you to take a look at for Halloween.





Located at 346 W 46th St., Bourbon Street Bar and Grille is a great spot to have some fun.  The joint is inspired by everything that makes the Crescent City & Southern Louisiana great.  They are hoping to bring that energy and delicious food from New Orleans right into the Theatre District.





A multi-level bar and dining establishment with striking attention to detail and the best food and drinks that "N'awlins" has to offer.  The ground level is dedicated to the huge main bar and back lounge with high-topped bar level tables and intimate booths.  Upstairs is a beautiful dining room Oh, and if you're an LSU football fan this is the bar to stop at during a big game.



SWA Architecture are the architects, planners, designers and expediters for this location and several other locations with Allied Management.  We even have another project of theirs coming up in our next post so be on the look out.



That's it this week for the SWA Architecture blog post.  Stay tuned for some more great projects coming your way.  And don't forget to follow us on the 'gram - @swa_architecture
