Garrett Singer Architecture + Design is established as one of the leading design firms in the NYC restaurant industry, encompassing a multitude of disciplines and creating thoughtful, provocative architecture, brands and environments. GSAD has earned a reputation as one of the most innovative design firms in the field, due in large part to the group’s ability to exceed expectations for all concepts, sizes and budgets and by focusing on creating transformative experiences for all our clientele.

Growing up in a family of architects, fashion designers and interior designers, Garrett Singer was destined to have a career in the design industry. After graduating from Syracuse University’s School of Architecture in 1996, Singer honed his hospitality design skills working for Bogdanow Partners (Union Square Café, City Hall, Rain).

Garrett Singer Architecture + Design was formed in 2000, when Garrett befriended several local restaurateurs looking to open small trendy restaurants in his own neighborhood of lower Manhattan. Since then, Garrett has applied his versatile and innovative design aesthetic toward developing restaurants and bars of all kinds, including prototypes for a variety of chain restaurants. GSAD’s approach to each project is to deliver design-driven solutions regardless of sophistication or budget. GSAD’s designs are always focused on the emotional connection between the customer and the concept.  

This commitment to consumer needs, along with resourcefulness and innovation, has made GSAD one of the prominent NYC design firms in hospitality and restaurant design. Current (and repeat) clients include Dig Inn Seasonal Market, Schnipper’s Restaurant, Five Napkin Burgers, Havana Central, HU Kitchen, Hill Country Chicken, Hill Country BBQ, Bounce Sporting Club, Two Boots Pizza among many other one off concepts both big and small.
