We are thrilled to share the New York Times' profile of Link Farm House written by Tim McKeough. His elegant narrative about the design process astutely describes our objectives as a synthesis of the client's desires and the site's potential. You can read the whole article here.
Thanks to Tim and the Times for an excellent piece, and to Soo and Carolina for graciously opening their home.

Cocktails & Conversation is a series of dialogues about design that join an architect with a critic, journalist, curator, or architectural historian to discuss current architecture and design issues at the Center for Architecture. Each program includes a custom-crafted cocktail—one inspired by the architects’ work and created especially for this event.
James and Hayes will be discussing a small handful of projects and focusing on how consideration of site can be a catalyst for their design process.

Today marks the start of Hayes’ year as President AIA NY! After receiving the gavel on December 4, Slade discussed her presidential theme, BUILDING COMMUNITY, which asks members and professionals how they can contribute to their communities—both outside and within the architecture profession. The incoming president began her speech by underscoring the profession’s sense of responsibility, focusing on the construction industry’s consumption of resources, the longevity of buildings, and their tremendous impact on the public. “As architects we are not elected or appointed, yet we create the built environment,” said Slade. “…Collectively, we create the public realm.”
At the broadest scale, Slade’s 2019 theme, BUILDING COMMUNITY, refers to this shared professional responsibility. In the summer of 2019, AIA New York and the Center for Architecture will explore these ideas with an exhibition, with maps by students from Pratt Institute, examining how public investment impacts communities.
The profession’s shared responsibility, however, can only be addressed by strengthening communal ties within the profession. Slade’s theme also considers the building community, here represented by AIA New York. During 2019, the Chapter will develop new initiatives, from career discovery for high school students to mentorship opportunities linking AIA Fellows with emerging professionals, to supporting members at different points in their career—and more to come!
In renovating the 100-year-old Eagle Warehouse into housing (800 units + 35,000 sf amenity space), we treated the existing historic structure like a palimpsest. We maintained traces of the original structure and its industrial history as we authored its residential future. Our design of the amenity spaces (lobby, lounges, rental office, library, gym, children’s room, corridors, rooftop and elevator lobbies), preserves and reveals the unique, brutal elegance of the existing industrial structure while delivering community-driven public spaces that capture an uncomplicated, relaxed luxury.
Slade Architecture Principal Hayes Slade, AIA will be participating in a panel at the Center For Architecture on thursday 3/15:
