Worrell Yeung is an architecture and design studio based in New York City and founded in 2014. The practice is an award-winning full-service architectural firm with a diverse portfolio that includes residential, public and commercial spaces. They focus on design solutions that are rigorous and concept-driven that respond to the inherent and unique complexities of each project. Backed by technical proficiency and experience, their work is characterized by a minimal, refined and restrained aesthetic, relying on a balanced play of elements such as light, color, form, and material, to create unique and comfortable spaces. One of their project is Chelsea Loft:
located in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City, the organizing design strategy of this renovation was to maintain openness and daylight in the public living zones, while minimizing the amount of partitions to accommodate private rooms for a family with small children. Occupying a half floor of a classic loft building, historic raw materials of the building such as timber columns and beams, cast iron capitals, and wood joists were left raw and exposed or revealed. Two dark-stained wood storage volumes organize the open public space, and a custom vertically-raked plaster core, complimenting the existing structure, contain the bathrooms and other utility spaces. Floors and casework throughout are white pigmented wood, and all perimeter walls are white in order to elevate brightness, and to showcase the owner’s art collection.
