What we do
York Street is a design and development collective based in New York City. We specialize in hospitality, exploring each project with a thoughtful sensibility rooted in rich storytelling. With an emphasis on collaborative design, we partner worldwide with developers as well as local artists and craftsmen to ensure every property speaks to its region and culture. York Street represents a diverse pair of designers from varied backgrounds in architecture, interior design, construction, branding, and creative direction.
We are working on a number of new and exciting projects. From ground-up constructions to renovations, we do it all. Please check back for more updates.
