Office Visit: Murphy Burnham & Buttrick in New York

Julie Carlson August 22, 2010

Manhattan-based Murphy Burnham & Buttrick Architects (a member of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory) is adept at creating light-filled, open-feeling spaces in urban enviroments, partly through the use of glass in unexpected applications. “Glass is a powerful way to open up tight spaces,” the architects say. “Because of its qualities of transparency, translucency, and reflection, glass immediately brings a sense of depth to a space. The play of light on glass adds to a feeling of expansiveness.” Here are a few projects showcasing how the architects use glass in various applications; see more of the firm’s work at Murphy Burnham & Buttrick Architects.
