Miami-based Oppenheim Architecture is planting a flag in New York City to satisfy a growing client base throughout the Northeast.

Known for dramatic and nature-inspired designs, Oppenheim is currently operating out of WeWork’s space at 175 Varick Street, the firm told The Real Deal.

“We are thrilled to establish a New York City office to better meet the needs of our clients in and around the area and to build to a strong foothold in the market,” Chad Oppenheim, the firm’s principal and lead designer, said in a statement.

Founded in 1999, the architecture, interior design and planning firm also has an office in Basel, Switzerland. Notable projects include the Wadi Rum Desert Resort in Jordan, which has 72 guests lodges, as well as Net Lima and Net Park, office and retail towers in the Philippines. Oppenheim also designed movie director Michael Bay’s 30,000-square-foot villa in Bel Air.

In the tri-state area, Oppenheim is designing iStar Financial’s Monroe Condominium, a 34-unit development in Asbury Park, N.J.

Several New York City projects may soon be on the horizon, Oppenheim said.

The firm submitted designs for Silverstein Properties’ 1.6 million mixed-use development at 514 Eleventh Avenue on the Far West Side, and it says it won a competition to design a new Williamsburg Hotel at 175 Broadway, adjacent to the Williamsburg Bridge.

Juan Lopez will run the New York office as studio leader.
