Architect David Businelli, owner of Staten Island’s Studio 16 Architecture, proudly transformed Studio 16 into an internationally-recognized firm since its 2008 re-branding.
With four American Institute of Architects (AIA) awards and countless honors for design achievements, Studio 16 Architecture brings a fresh approach to homes, businesses, and institutions.
While Businelli’s design style remains modern, he also likes to add new flavors, forms, and colors into projects whenever possible.
When Businelli creates an architectural design he says, “Art is very important. I look at it as an essential part of any design strategy.”
“I like Fortner’s sense of color and composition and the architectural forms of Noble’s sculptures. Both artists would work perfectly in the spaces I’ve worked on,” Businelli says.
“Within the integration between art and architecture there’s always that question of what’s happening with the space,” Businelli continues, “How will art work on the walls to create a proper focal point.”
