Top Weekly Projects

Blue Dog Café

Welcome back to SWA Architecture’s weekly top project blog.  As a refresher, this blog writes about the projects that SWA has collaborated on and gives some information on the location as well as what SWA did to help.  This week, we are looking at two cafes, Blue Dog Café, under the same owner, with the same name. 

The first location is on 308 West 50th Street.  This Blue Dog Café is in a quant location in midtown.  As you can see from the picture the façade is simplistic yet inviting.  The picture below conveys the openness of the space, with light freely entering from the large windows of the Façade.  SWA Architecture was engaged in the design and expediting for this project. 

The next Blue Dog Café we take you to is located at 155 West 56th Street.  Similarly to the other Blue Dog Café, this joint serves sandwiches and salads, homemade baked goods and smoothies with fresh fruit. 
These two midtown locations offer freshness that other coffee chains can simply not compete with.  SWA again dealt with the design and expediting.  Stay tuned for next week, we are going to take a look at some beautiful projects.  Until then.

Top Weekly Projects!

Welcome back to SWA’s top weekly projects.  This week we are looking at the exterior of two different locations SWA has collaborated on.  The first location is a place we have seen before, Melrose Ballroom.  Previously we took a look at the inside the newly furnished ballroom.  This time we are keeping it simple and letting you look at the newly installed façade.  As you can see this place is going to be a big spot so get ready, because once it comes, you won’t want to miss it.

Our next place we are looking at is Rivergate.  Located on 401 East 34th Street, we have not written about this place before.  In the heart of midtown Rivergate is the host to an amenity of luxury apartments.  SWA is assisting them with their window replacement.  As you can tell by the photograph, a lot of work is being to the exterior.  We will have a couple more places next week so stay tuned!
