Idan Naor Workshop (@inworkshop) is a design office based in Brooklyn.
We are passionate about creating spaces and environments, and we always carve out room in the design process for surprise and wonder.
With over 10 years of diverse experiences working at multiple scales on private, residential, commercial, hospitality and real estate development projects, our team is well equipped to shepherd your project through multiple facets of consideration. Every project has specific challenges that call for tailored solutions, and the office pursues opportunities (big and small) to offer typological innovation while addressing client needs with precision. We are part of an international network of collaborators that assemble on a project-specific basis in order to deliver the highest quality of design, service, and management.
