SUNO . New York, NY
This was the first office/showroom for Max Osterweis’ emerging fashion label, SUNO. This 1,800sf space in the heart of the NY garment district had to present a public face with reception, lounge and showroom for their garments and also serve private operations for design and storage of product samples.
The existing elevator core provided a natural pinch point in the middle of the space to break up these public and private program requirements. This was further emphasized by the lone architectural insertion into the space, a volume housing a conference room and garment storage that acted as a multi-purpose space for client meetings, garment fitting, staff meetings and design charrettes.
At the front of the space, the elevator opens into a shared reception, lounge and product showroom. At the rear are staff seating, kitchen and dining area, bathrooms and a pin up area for future designs and inspiration.
Final photographs were never taken of the completed design as the Brand's success caused them to quickly outgrow the space.
