Architect Visit: Rees Roberts + Partners in Tribeca

Josh Groves January 23, 2011

Located in the heart of Tribeca, the storefront offices of Rees Roberts + Partners feature large steel-framed glass windows that offer a glimpse of the design process taking place within. Headed by British-born painter and designer Lucien Rees Roberts, who studied architecture at Cambridge, RR+P concentrates on interior and landscape design, creating effortlessly elegant projects that "defer to the elements of art, light, and views." Rees Roberts frequently works with Steven Harris Architects (the two were fully integrated under the SHA name from the mid-1980s to 2007) and shares office space with the firm. To see more work, go to Rees Roberts + Partners.
