About michelson studio
M Studio is located between Washington Street and the West Side Highway, one block north of West 11th Street.
Overlooking the Hudson River, M Studio/Michelson Studio is architecturally progressive in a Fifties/Sixties motif with furnishings included in the Permanent Collection of the Museum of Modern Art. During daylight hours natural light bathes the studio from early morning til sunset through the 50 eight foot windows accessing unobstructed views East, South, and West over the Hudson River. At night the studio view is of the evening river traffic from the Statue of Liberty to the Jersey Cliffs.
The interior of M Studio is covered with light maple wood with a semigloss coating. The walls are stark white covered with art ranging from 18th c. Venetian paintings to photographs by Joel Peter Witkin. An industrial theme vibrates through the studio space from riveted steel bathrooms and massive hinges to vault doors and a poured concrete kitchen.
M Studio/Michelson Studio can be divided easily into two separate spaces by closing 2 fourteen foot doors and still be visually accessable atop a flight of free standing metal stairs with a mezzanine overlooking both spaces. Shoji screens 15 foot high of steel and rice paper/plexi break up the minimalist design adding flow and visual interest.
