Dean/Wolf Architects

New York City-based Dean/Wolf Architects have been praised for their uncanny ability to turn architectural constraints into powerful generators of form. Since founding their firm in 1991, architects Kathryn Dean and Charles Wolf have completed residential and institutional projects at a variety of scales. All of these projects are distinguished by a highly thought-provoking manipulation of light and space. The firm’s award-winning loft interiors are small-scale wonders precisely crafted from sensual materials such as concrete, steel, maple, and glass. Dean/Wolf activates these highly resonant materials with deliberately focused light in order to dissolve boundaries of interior and exterior space. For Dean/Wolf, this requires not only a consideration of physical space, but also a psychological engagement between the client’s mind and the space they inhabit.
