A leader in today’s global design culture, Reddymade Architecture and Design was founded by Suchi Reddy in 2002. Since its inception the firm has been lauded for its formal experimentation, its imaginative use of color and passion for innovative materials.
Along with widely-praised commissions in New York – Reddymade’s headquarters – the firm’s projects extend from Los Angeles and Miami to Chennai, India, the architect’s birthplace.
“I liken my design process to writing poetry”, Reddy says. “We strive to combine form, passion, and new materiality into a distilled, unique visual language for each project”.
Reddy’s sophisticated ‘sense of the new’ is evident in the firm’s current work: a kinetic rain-screen facade being designed for a building in Chennai India, a custom modular home in Beverly Hills, and a 264 unit condominium project in Sunny Isles, Florida, with lobbies designed by Karl Lagerfeld. The firm’s design that remade a former women’s prison in Manhattan into the Women’s Building, a center for the global women’s and girls rights movement, was one of thirteen finalists in the 2016 competition.
Reddy’s deep interest in contemporary art informs all her work from high end interiors to architecture. With gallerist Sara Meltzer, Reddy launched WeR2, to commission artists to reinvent everyday objects making art an essential aspect of daily living. “Art should be a continuing and imaginative presence in everyone’s life”, insists the architect.
In all areas of architecture and design, Reddymade’s philosophy of pushing for design breakthroughs – both formal and expressive – remains more steadfast than ever. Confirms Reddy, “when we bring our talents to a project, Reddymade always looks to realize its full poetic potential”.
Reddymade projects have been featured in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Interior Design, Elle Decor, and Architectural Digest India.
