Text description provided by the architects. Our design for artist Ghada Amer's studio sits on the ruins of a burned-down church on Frederick Douglass Boulevard in West Harlem. Our intervention involved the adaptation and transformation of the existing structure into a home, art studio, gallery, and social gathering space for Amer and her partner.

Our intervention both responds to the heritage of the site and boldly signals itself as a singularly modern space for living culture and creativity.

Our innovation is in the detailing of the facade. The new facade is an abstraction of the former church’s; it recapitulates the historical arch windows without ornamental obfuscation.
