Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas from Fivecat Studio

Open the Door for a Christmas Greeting from the Whole Crew

Pillows for Puppies Donation Drive Moved to Spring

Pillows for Puppies 111111

Christmas is a great time to donate to the SPCA of Westchester and Pets Alive, which is why we’ve decided this year to move our annual donation drive to the Spring. The shelters receive lots of attention during the holidays and we want to have maximum impact with our Pillows for Puppies Donation Drive.

If you have collected items for the animals, you may deliver them directly to the shelters or drop them off at the studio after the new year.

Stay tuned to this blog. We’ll be posting dates later this winter.

We’ve Made Room for a Few Friends (Space Available at Fivecat Studio)

We’ve made room for a few “friends”. If you are looking for office space, come join us in our centrally located Pleasantville studio.

The following “turn-key” spaces are available for lease starting immediately:

Two (2) workspaces in our open plan design studio. Each space is 7′ x 9′, with a custom built-in corner computer workstation (computer not included) and 7 linear feet of 36″ deep work space. The month-to-month lease includes utilities, internet access and shared use of our 1,500 SF open plan design studio; office equipment, meeting table, book shelves, sink, couch, large layout worktable, toilets, etc. Bring your laptop and get to work. Our “loft-like” open studio has 12′ high ceilings, hardwood floors and large windows overlooking Pleasantville’s Memorial Plaza. We will lease these workspaces together or individually. This is perfect solution for a sole proprietor architect, interior designer or engineer, but any business is welcome. Rent is $300/mo. for each space or $500/mo. for both spaces.

Private corner office. This private office is approximately 80 SF, includes two large windows, tall ceilings and overlooks the Pleasantville central business district. The month-to-month lease includes utilities, internet access and shared use of our 1,500 SF open plan design studio; office equipment, meeting table, book shelves, sink, couch, large layout worktable, toilets, etc. Bring your laptop and get to work. This is great office space for any businessperson requiring privacy with access to a creative open studio environment. Rent is $350/mo.

Fivecat Studio is located directly adjacent to the Pleasantville MetroNorth train station and is easily accessed from the Saw Mill River Parkway. Pleasantville is a thriving village with few vacancies available. This is an opportunity to be located with one of Westchester’s most successful architecture firms in one of Westchester’s premier business districts.

Email us at for an appointment to visit the studio or to ask questions about the available spaces.

Introducing the “All New”

The new is beautifully simple.

In order to better present our work to the world, we’ve been busy developing some new online resources. If you follow our firm, you know well of our long-time online presence. We are very active throughout the World Wide Web, reaching out and introducing new fans to the work of Fivecat Studio. We are constantly improving your experience online and regularly update our profiles on Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter.

We use each site to serve a very different function. Linkedin is a great way to stay connected to valued business partners, as well as past and present Fivecat clients. If you consider yourself in either category, please send me a request to connect on Linkedin. I’d love to stay in touch. If we’ve done a good job for you, please consider a recommendation.

We feed our Facebook weekly with mobile updates on current projects and “behind the curtain” news and information. I personally tweet throughout the day on Twitter with thoughts, inspiration and interesting links.

Although less active, this blog serves well for more developed posts on architecture and design, happening here at Fivecat Studio, throughout Westchester County and beyond.

In May we went back to our cyber-roots and relaunched an all-new website. The decision to relaunch was not a simple one. is our homebase online, and our previous site was entirely designed, built and maintained in-house. It served us very well since starting the firm back in 1999.

With the arrival of omnipresent high-speed Internet access, it was time to redesign. With such a broad online presence, we wanted the new to be a simple and “straight to the point” online portfolio. After searching many presentation alternatives, including overhauling the site again in-house, we were very happy to be introduced to (thanks to the guys at BUILD LLC). liveBooks is a company that has built their reputation serving the professional photographer. Their sites are beautifully simple and exactly what we were looking for. The new is built entirely around high resolution, high quality photographs (mostly shot by my brother, photo pro Scott LePage). Together with liveBooks, we developed an online experience that meets our very high standards. The site is easy to navigate and visitors are totally immersed in full color images of our favorite work. I hope you find some time to visit the site and leave a comment here on what you think of the experience.

We think the site looks great. liveBooks thinks so too. So much so, that they featured on their Success Stories blog.

We have more news to share on new ways to experience the world of Fivecat Studio online. Stay tuned. We’ve been busy…
