Hut Sachs Studio ("Read On," page 140) is an architectural firm founded by Thomas Hut and Jane Sachs in 1993. In different ways, each of the principals brings an understanding of art to the practice of design. A graduate of Princeton University's master's in architecture program, Hut has been a registered architect since 1980. His familiarity with large-scale art projects was honed during his seven years at the Guggenheim Museum, where he worked on the construction of Frank Gehry's Guggenheim Bilbao. Sachs, a ceramicist by training, developed her sense of surface, color, and plastic form in a new realm in the Columbia School of Architecture master's program. Hut Sachs Studio is best known for its radical rethinking of office spaces for MTV Networks, TBWA\Chiat\Day, ScreamingMedia, and DoubleClick. The firm's extensive residential résumé notes the late Jay Chiat's beach house on Long Island, New York, as well as numerous high-end residential renovations in Manhattan. An affinity for projects related to the art world continues with the design for the James Cohan Gallery in Chelsea, scheduled to open this fall. 414 Broadway, New York, NY 10013; 212-219-1567.
