DXA Studio Architecture believes that buildings, when well conceived and expertly crafted, can be more than the sum of their materials, positively influencing the way we live our lives. They are capable of shaping the way we feel about ourselves and informing how we interact with others. At larger scales, buildings can change entire communities, bringing forth recognition and serving as catalysts for growth and vitality.
DXA Studio’s expertise spans an uncommonly broad spectrum of project types including multi-family and single family residential, commercial, institutional, hotel and event design. DXA provides a rare balance of highly crafted design and exceptional project management, with particular adeptness at landmarks, loft board and zoning approvals, and NYC City Planning and Uniform Land Use Review Procedures.
