Tang Kawasaki Studio designs different spaces for different people.
We are a full-service design practice with a focus on interior architecture and over 20 years of experience crafting spaces in and around New York City. Believing that design informs the value of our interactions with each other and the materials that surround us, the firm pursues the essence of each client’s design agenda with empathy towards the reductive qualities of place-making, while avoiding dogmatic adherence to any one architectural style. At the core of every project, is a question of what comfort means to the user.
The studio has been globally recognized for their designs and featured in publications by TeNeues, Collins Design, Harper Designs, Braun Publishing, Universe Publishing, daab, Surface Magazine, Dezeen, Remodelista, New York Magazine, Estilo Magazine, Farenheit Magazine, Codigo 06140, and Luxury Homes Quarterly.
