Architects Mojo Stumer Associates took home an "Archi" from the 47th Annual Design Awards Ceremony of the Long Island Chapter of the American Institute of Architects for the design of a live/work and gallery space in Chinatown for a renowned Korean artist and his developer wife.  The Greenville, Long Island, firm, recognized for its elegant modernist architecture, has won the award 67 times over the past 31 years.

"Winning the ‘Archi’ is especially gratifying for us," said Mark Stumer, founding principal of the firm. "While we work across the region and internationally, Long Island is our professional and personal community."

The winning project, a 7,300 sf penthouse with a 2,000 sf terrace, was designed to accommodate the young family's modern, everyday life as well as being an inviting, contemporary space for entertaining and a gallery for the client's work. To incorporate the spectacular Manhattan cityscape as part of the living environment, the designers took advantage of the high ceilings and sprawling terrace using floor to ceiling windows and massive sliding doors.  The muted color palette and sleek modern furnishings reflect the clients' Zen-inspired design philosophy and provide a sophisticated backdrop for the artist-client's warm, colorful art and handcrafted furniture.
