New York, NY
Cost Study / Design / Construction Documentation / Construction Admin
We designed a home for spouse who is a Michelin trained chef and the the other collects wine and host parties. The challenge was that the home had no been renovated since the 60's. By removing the wall between the living room and kitchen we created bar seating with a built-in wine bar and a high-end display kitchen. Other wishlist amenities that were added include a gas fireplace, an executive walk-in closest, programmable showers, and a concealed laundry room. Construction will be complete in March 2020.
MF GIRBAUD SHOWROOM
NEW YORK, NY
Interior Design / Graphic Design
In collaboration with Formavision, VERSA created custom wallpaper and 3d renderings Girbaud’s showroom. We used commissioned photographer's high-res photos of a real French mansion interior. The photos were manipulated to align with real measurements and obstacles in the showroom creating a surreal illusion.
REEBOK FLASH POP-UP STORE
NEW YORK, NY
Interior Design / 3d Visualization
In collaboration with Formavision, VERSA assisted with the design the first pop-up store for Reebok in the Bowery district of NYC. We created a 3D model to layout the geometric graphics to create perspective illusions. Simple shapes appeared to shift and transform as shoppers moved through the store.

The Villa Rosa Kempinski Hotel is designed for absolute luxury and comfort. Our inspiration was historic Italian villas for the hotel lobby, corridors, and rooms mixed with contemporary comforts and amenities. The scope of work encompassed design for five restaurants that included a French bistro, Pan-Asian dining, and a Moroccan rooftop lounge, as well as a full-service spa, and gym. Designed while with Design Worldwide Partnership.
SPORTMAX MMIX INSTALLATION FOR MAXMARA
NEW YORK, NY
Concept / 3d Visualization / Fabrication
Designed in collaboration with musicians Sebastien Agneessens and Kyle Fischer, the MMIX is a six channel sound installation integrating sampled field recordings by ethno-musicologist Alan Lomax. VERSA provided precision modeling and visualization services for the digital fabrication of six unique speakers for this sound installation. Designed as both wall mount and floor standing units at various scales, each speaker was 3d modeled and prototyped using CNC fabrication.
Architecture / Urban Design Concept
VERSA was selected by a Detroit-based developer who needed a design proposal for their competitive bid submission to develop seven parcels of land. In a few workshops sessions with the developer and stakeholders we helped create a graphic presentation, storyline and building design. The important features that were included in the design were easy-to-lease floor plans, sustainability, local art and creating an identity and sense of arrival for the district.
