SITU was founded in 2005, in Brooklyn, New York, by four friends studying architecture at the Cooper Union. We’ve shaped our practice out of the multi-disciplinary style of our education, and have grown through clients who value a progressive approach to problem-solving.

Our process is client-specific, adaptive, and driven by a diversity of deep knowledge, untethered from any stylistic or formal agenda. This allows us to work out of bounds, using new tools of architecture to generate unique outcomes.

Our practice is composed of three divisions—Studio, Research and Fabrication—that work collaboratively while providing individual services. This keeps prototyping, research and development, and hands-on craft elemental to our creative process.

Our space is split between creative studio and workshop. This enables a unique sort of radical pragmatism—experimenting with new material possibilities as they’re imagined.

Our staff is made up of a wide range of specialists across disciplines: architecture, art, design, engineering, fabrication, geography, programming, urbanism, visualization, research and development—all dedicated to exploring and crafting spaces at multiple scales.

Our clients and collaborators come from an equally varied collection of sectors: museums, art centers and academic institutions; civic, social and professional organizations; developers, high-end commercial companies and residential clientele.

SITU has received numerous awards and honors including grants from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and Oak Foundation, Interior Design Best of Year in 2014 and 2011 and an award for Excellence in Design by the Art Commission of the City of New York.
