AlexAllen Studio is an architecture and design studio founded in 2013 by Alexandra Burr and Allen Slamic. From their studio in Gowanus, Brooklyn they focus on architecture projects and design and manufacture lighting, furniture and objects. They strive to be authentic to materials and form, creating products and spaces with an inherent simplicity, while at the same time responding to their context, programmatic and functional needs. Their approach is material and process driven, exploring the technical challenges of the fabrication and manufacturing process while striving to produce innovative and timeless design.
Prior to co-founding AlexAllen Studio, Alexandra Burr worked in the offices of Rafael Vinoly, Leroy Street Studio, Gage/Clemenceau Architects and Bernheimer Architecture. She has served as project manager and designer for numerous residential and commercial projects including a 10,000 sf triplex condo renovation in Brooklyn Heights, an award winning retail store for Malin+Goetz in Los Angeles, a 6000sf state of the art boutique cycling studio and lounge in Manhattan and a number of high profile international competitions. Alexandra earned a Master of Architecture from Yale University in 2008 and a Bachelor degree in Studio Art and Art History from Middlebury College in 2004.
