Urban Apartments and Shared Public Spaces

In collaboration with her clients and subs, Schweitzer creates fluid apartment spaces that marry clean lines with multi-layered texture. She integrates textiles, finishes and lighting to impart warmth and tactility. All aspects, from overall layout to molding details and hardware, to commissioned artwork,  are treated as parts of greater whole. VSA has clients returning for second homes. Her team obtains Landmarks commission approval  where needed in New York City and works with all types of budgets.
