Studio RB helped transform Anixi with rich architectural elements that will encompass timelessness and pay homage to old New York. The vegan eatery's design includes an 18th-century marble staircase, crystal chandeliers, brass, and copper fittings, as well as a collaboration with New York City-based artist Lia Ali for a hand-made artwork.


The entrance of the dining hall has intricately designed ornaments, including a Greek caryatid-like molding on the side of the main door lavished with gilded embellishments.

An opulent dining room lit by a succession of crystal chandeliers with a central fireplace and walls lined with mirrors to allow more light to bounce around the dining area and enlarge the space more.

The Illinois is a residential building in Forrest Hills, Queens. We were asked by the board members to update the lobby.

The existing lobby was old and dated. The last time the lobby was renovated was 40 years ago and we are happy that our design drastically improved the quality of life for residents and staff

We enlarged the vestibule, provided new finishes, new light cove and a modern pendant light fixture. All of these contributed for the fresh look and feel of the lobby. Wall tile by Porcelanosa.
