Firm DescriptionS3 architecture LLC is the Studio for Sustainable Shelter, an Architecture, Interior and Urban Design Studio based in New York City.
Christopher Dierig and S3 have designed new buildings, interior renovations, historic building conversions and urban designs for residential, commercial, educational, retail, hospitality, and entertainment projects. This cumulative exposure and a collaborative approach with designers, engineers and energy consultants have prepared S3 to successfully complete large and small projects with varied programs.
S3 designs in the New York urban and ex-urban context. These projects can be found in Manhattan high-rises, up-and-coming neighborhoods in the Boroughs, and in rezoned areas where departed industries have presented S3 and its Clients with the opportunity to salvage urban relics and imagine new occupancies.
S3 has LEED Accredited Professional staff, whose sustainable design approach utilizes green, renewable materials and energy-efficient systems in construction, thereby doing its part in preserving the environment. S3’s design approach adds further value to its Clients by passing on energy cost savings.
S3 produces designs with a functional modernist aesthetic, and in response to an existing historic or industrial context. S3 works with every Client to evolve a unique and functional design response to the program, budget and schedule.
