RADD Visit: Front Studio in New York

February 6, 2011

A recent addition to the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory: Front Studio in New York. The three principals–Yen Ha, Arthur Lubetz, and Michi Yanagishita–met at Carnegie Mellon University; among them, they have studied in Glasgow, Paris, and Pittsburgh and speak Japanese, Vietnamese, and French. Their work has been featured in Wallpaper (which named them one of the “world’s 50 hottest young architectural practices” in 2008), the New York Times, and Interior Design.

N.B.: To see more of the firm’s work, go to Front Studio on RADD. Also check out Lunch Studio, a blog chronicling the firm’s culinary adventures in New York.
