DXA Studio is a New York City-based architecture firm whose work masterfully and consistently strikes a balance between seemingly opposing forces. DXA Studio’s projects combine the art with the science of architecture, design innovation with technical excellence, contemporary considerations with a sense of craft, and a modern outlook with a respect for history and context. The firm was founded in 2011 by Jordan Rogove and Wayne Norbeck, with a focus on authenticity, sustainability and originality in all projects and a belief in the power of architecture to positively influence the lives of all that engage with it. Whether a competition-winning scheme for a new Midtown viaduct, multifamily projects in New York City, a passive house in Brooklyn, or several pro-bono projects including a project to fight malaria in Namibia and a new housing prototype for HIV/AIDS patients in Haiti, DXA Studio has always endeavored to create work that hews to these values and that makes the designed environment better and more dignified at all scales and typologies. The firm’s expertise spans a wide array of project types, including multi-family and single-family residential, commercial, education/institutional and hospitality. No matter the specific building, the firm’s response never comes from a set of a priori assumptions. Projects always begin with an open exchange of ideas, along with a thorough investigation of the complexities and context of the site. In-depth research and analysis happen throughout the design process to identify opportunities to push boundaries and integrate technological advances in building materials, construction, and sustainable strategies. From this process, the site, program and unique possibilities of each project are explored and designs of distinctive identity, clarity, and ingenuity are created. Working at the scale of a boutique design studio allows DXA Studio’s principals interaction with every project at all phases – from inception through construction – and with the firm’s clients. At the same time, the expertise and experience of the firm’s principals and staff allows DXA to function like a much larger firm. The work of the studio – both built and unbuilt - has received numerous design awards, including several Best of Design Awards from The Architect’s Newspaper, awards from the American Institute of Architects, and the Society of Registered Architects (SARA) awards. The firm’s first monograph, titled DXA NYC: 10 Years of Building on History, was published by ORO in June 2022.
