Worrell Yeung is an architecture and design studio based in Brooklyn, New York. Founded in 2014 by Max Worrell and Jejon Yeung, our practice synthesizes complex systems and needs into clear conceptual solutions that are precise and considered. Working across several scales and typologies—from adaptive reuse and public space to ground-up residential and cultural—we approach every project as an opportunity to create work that is adaptable to the present climate, focused on function, and enduring.
We approach conceptualization and construction with equal importance, making work that appears simple and unembellished but is rooted in a rigorous and innovative design and analysis process—from concept to realization. At its core, our work embodies a concise, poetic pragmatism that encourages discovery and wonder at multiple scales. We strive to create architecture that makes life better for people and positively transforms the experiences of its users and the wider community.
