Overhead is a full-service architecture and design studio in New York City.
Overhead took form under the same roof as an artist-led construction company, where it began with a slightly different name: “overhead.” You might have heard of them.
But what began as a wistful joke about the place of architects in the construction industry quickly became a serious undertaking with projects ranging from the full renovation of a fin de siècle townhouse in Park Slope to an intricate millwork project at Columbus Circle, and from the fabrication of the hub at Performa 17 to the design of a dance club in Mexico City, and many more.
Overhead still shares its roof but provides architectural services independent of the construction office. This makes available both a design-bid-build process with in-house cost estimation, and a streamlined design-build process that attenuates what can so often be a many-years-long process.
Overhead has little interest in platonic ideals floating high overhead, and instead looks to the immediate, the preexisting, and the overlooked conditions around them as material rife with opportunity.
