Good design is not a superficial application of finishes on complicated forms, but rather the result of thoughtful space planning and an understanding of the program as a whole, appropriate use of materials, image, and experience.
Since its origin as Coburn Architecture in 1997, CWB Architects has been located in Brooklyn's DUMBO historic waterfront disctrict. In the last 18 years CWB architects has steadily grown its practice from a two-person shop focused on historic row house renovations into a 27 person multi-disciplinary architecture, preservation and interior desgin firm creating residential, commercial, and institutional spaces throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, Westchester, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Eastern Long Island.
We believe that good design and good management can coexist, provided they are given equal prioirty from day one of any given project and are methodically observed through the course of the work. We know good design comes about when the architect has a thorough understanding of a client's needs and fully understands the contect in which the project with exist. With those objectives met, we believe esign has the ability to elevate the function of space from mere utility to being something that enhances one's experiences and productivity within it.
