Make Design Great Again, with EXD Architecture

Glad we got your attention! In these uncertain times we understand that our relationship to each other, as well as to our spaces, is especially important. 

We have scheduled the launch of our new website as a response to the issues people are facing at this moment. How can we repurpose existing space? What is the next step for retail? How can our spaces be healthier and more efficient? How can our workspaces be safer and allow for more change? How can our house perform for all the multiple activities required today? With each project, EXD Interior Architects has answers to these questions, for their clients.

Who is EXD?

Our approach is to understand the problem and to develop individual responses for each client. We are interior architects, working from the inside out of the building envelope. EXD studies and assists the urban lifestyle by encourage intelligent and functional living/working in under-utilized residential and commercial spaces, using every available inch, for S, M , and L spaces.

Our inspiration

Based in New York, we believe that the spaces we inhabit should reflect and enable us to live how we want to live, not limit us. Spaces should be flexible and versatile – 24 hours a day – so that we can work, rest, and play how we choose. That inspires us and guides our work.

In NYC… and beyond!

EXD NYC Architects study and assist the urban lifestyle by encouraging intelligent and functional living. In New York and most other modern cities, space is extremely limited in many homes, particularly apartments. Our work takes us from city to city, coast to coast, and to different continents. We have teams that allow us to extend our services anywhere.

How can we help you?

We’re “adaptive creative practitioners”. We understand that the new definition of luxury Is EXPERIENCE. At EXD we design for people’s needs and how they change throughout the day, or throughout their life. EXD can provide 24-hour enhanced functionality so that people can do more and feel better in the spaces in which they live, learn and work. Our mission is to help clients to improve the way they live and work because optimizing space adds value not only to the property but the users’ life.

We believe everyone deserves good design. It affects how we live, work, rest and play.

We believe that space is a catalyst for change. Start inside your space and that will radiate out into the world.

We believe Design matters. It influences how we feel, think, and treat others, which could not be more important than right now.
