Spacesmith | Hudson
As a long-time Hudson resident, Jane Smith, the firm’s founding partner, has been an active leader in the city and served on the Historic Preservation Commission for two years. Due to Jane’s commitment to this multidimensional and vibrant city, it was a natural transition when she selected Hudson as the location for the firm’s second office.
The Spacesmith | Hudson office will work in tandem with our main studio in New York City, and we are excited to offer our services and expand our portfolio in the Hudson Valley and Greater Capital Region, where private and public investment continues to grow.
As a firm, we are purposeful about the projects and clients we take on. We are committed to partnering with forward-thinking folks who are engaged in their communities. Our projects encompass public spaces that foster connections and directly serve their neighbors, as well as private ones that empower people to innovate, educate, thrive and inspire.
In addition to our love of brand new architecture, the Upstate Region has a rich collection of existing, historic buildings, and we want to be part of the team that reinvents them for future generations.
We believe that space is full of possibility.
Process is everything - communication, collaboration, respect
The process of making architecture is a complex balancing act of priorities. Acting as the lead communicator is one of the core responsibilities of an architect. We always strive to outline a clear, methodical process to keep all the pieces moving in the right direction.
Spacesmith encourages an iterative design process, meaning a cyclical, open dialogue with our clients and consultants. We believe this results in the most responsive, appropriate design for each project; top down architecture doesn’t allow for the collaborative relationships that we thrive on. Open lines of communication are especially important once the design phase is complete and construction begins. We deeply value the expertise that contractors provide and we make sure they have all the support they need to get the project done well.
