Apartment Renovations and Combinations
We are an apartment renovation architect in New York, with extensive experience of designing apartments. As apartment combination architects, we create ingenious, imaginative and sustainable designs within existing structures including co-op, condo and landmark preservation buildings.
Studio ST Architects have two decades of experience working with apartment owners and new buyers to create their dream homes. We work on luxury apartment renovations, as well as many apartment combinations with a tight budget. We partner with each client to design spaces that fit their lifestyle.
We understand that every apartment is unique and so is each owner or family. Interior renovations or apartment combinations offer great opportunities to reimagine spaces and tailor them to our client’s vision, and each apartment comes with its own unique set of challenges, calling on different expertise.
We partner with clients to understand how they want to use their space, what their budget is, and their scheduling constraints. We have a deep understanding of the challenges, complexities, and costs involved in renovating in New York City, Manhattan and Brooklyn. We know that clients want to realize their vision while keeping to a schedule and budget.
We know that renovating in Manhattan can be stressful and expensive. With our many years of experience, we guide our clients in this journey and assist them in the process. We feel proud of our clients’ and colleagues’ excellent reviews of their experience working with us.
We draw on many sources of inspiration to spark our creativity and help clients envision how their living spaces can create a sense of well-being, accessibility, and connection. As partners, we discuss how they can create sustainable designs, by considering using techniques and materials that limit the environmental impact on the planet.
At Studio ST we know what is involved in interior renovations and apartment combinations and we have successfully guided many projects from beginning to end.
