In most cities, including New York, it's not unusual to have diverse design professionals sharing the same studio space. The architectural firm Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis (LTL) is doing just that in a building in downtown Manhattan in New York until the need arose to find their own space. LTL first came upon its current offices on Manhattan's Lower East Side when the team needed a space to store their tools. After four frantic weeks of building, the firm Essex Street Studios opened in January 2001. Each tenant pays for the desk they occupy and shares overhead expenses, including plotters, copiers, fax machines, and cleaning services, as well as the library.
