Frederick Tang Architecture is a boutique architecture and design practice based in the Old American Can Factory in Gowanus, Brooklyn. The ten-person studio provides a full array of architectural and design services from early programming and conceptualization through architectural and interior design, permitting, bidding, and construction phase services. The holistic practice completes the package with custom offerings in branding, graphic, product, and experience design.

Rather than approach each project with a particular style we prefer to emphasize experimentation, curiosity, and collaboration throughout our process. The studio designs largely in physical models, full-scale mock-ups, material samples, hand sketching, as well as digital renderings. We trust that an iterative process produces more refined and unexpected solutions because space can tell a story.

Our work spans many typologies and scales including public spaces such as retail stores, restaurants, art galleries, and fitness centers, as well as private spaces like townhouses, apartments, and offices. Current projects include a Williamsburg studio for the artist Adam Pendleton, a home in Germantown, New York, and more.

Boerum Hill Townhouse

Frederick Tang Architecture has completed the gut renovation and addition of a 2,700-square-foot Boerum Hill brownstone, originally built in 1899 and affectionately known as ‘The Pink House,’ for a creative couple with two young children. The Brooklyn-based firm’s redesign highlights the building’s rich history by restoring historic detail and preserving aesthetic choices made by its imaginative former owners, while simultaneously expanding and refining the space with bright, sumptuous details and smooth, curvaceous surfaces. The project hinged on the ambitious conversion of the brownstone from a two-family structure with an oddly shaped rear addition into a one-family home complete with a new, light-filled addition spanning the lot’s width.

Eastern Parkway

Frederick Tang Architecture has completed the renovation and interior design of a 2,500-square-foot, 13th-floor apartment in Brooklyn’s Turner Towers, a grand pre-war, art deco building dating to 1926. Located on Eastern Parkway, the apartment overlooks both The Brooklyn Museum and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Designed for a couple who work in the arts and their two children, the renovation balances reverence for the apartment’s history with contemporary, custom details inspired by the family’s artistic sensibility and casual lifestyle.

Upper East Side Combination

Frederick Tang Architecture completed the gut renovation and combination of two units on the sixth floor of an Upper East Side post-war co-op building for a young family: a lawyer, a doctor, their design-driven 10-year-old daughter, and two dogs, Waffles and Chili. The result fuses a 1970s open-concept layout, art deco opulence, luxe materiality, and playful details.

Upper West Side Combination

Frederick Tang Architecture recently completed the gut renovation and combination of two residential condominium units on the Upper West Side. A primary goal of the redesign was to combine the two apartments, affording a separate wing for the children, which includes a media room, study area, bathroom, and laundry. Other key additions which framed the design include entertaining areas for the couple’s friends and a home office.
