About Studio Eber

Studio Eber is an award-winning New York City-based architecture and design studio founded by Hayley Eber. The studio actively engages projects that seek to expand the boundaries of architecture, through the design of buildings, interiors, objects, environments and installations. Through built projects and speculative investigations, the work is driven by an experimental approach that leads to conceptually rigorous and detail-oriented design.
