At Workshop/APD, an award-winning New York City-based multidisciplinary design and architecture firm, each project is uniquely defined by a sense of place and purpose and a desire to ultimately enhance the user’s experience through exceptional design. From sleek penthouses and seaside retreats to luxury residential developments and groundbreaking hotels and restaurants, the Workshop/APD aesthetic is timelessly modern but site-specific, unbound by project type or a singular style. Led by founding principals Matt Berman and Andrew Kotchen and principal Thomas Zoli, a collaborative team of more than 50 architects, interior designers and product designers leverages its vast and highly varied experiences to solve complex design challenges, resulting in spaces that are exceptionally beautiful and accessible.
Through a unique, vertically-integrated service offering that spans all aspects of architecture, interior design and product design, Workshop/APD can own every step of the process from inception to completion. The firm is known for embracing technology and celebrating craft, actively pursuing materials with a worked hand and creating one-of-a-kind furnishings and finishes to bring texture, materiality and contrast to luxurious modern spaces. Committed to designing places that celebrate a project’s location and history, the team demonstrates a profound respect for the physical and contextual environment in which projects are realized, extending the experience beyond the structure to merge landscape, neighborhood and architecture and furnishings in a beautiful, synergistic unit. The firm’s award-winning product designs include luxurious, coastal inspired rugs with Warp & Weft, a modern hardware collection for SA Baxter, Aster Cucine kitchens, and upcoming collaborations with best-in-class partners including Arteriors and JANUS et Cie.
