Buffalo Design Collaborative Building

Buffalo Design CollaborativeThe Buffalo Design Collaborative occupy this Art Deco building on Buffalo's Delaware Avenue.

The building dates from 1930 and was designed by Duane Lyman.

While taking these photos we attracted the attention of Jake Schneider, from Architecture Firm and Design Collaborative member Schneider Design, who invited us into the building and gave us an impromptu tour.

Jake was obviously proud of the building and his efforts to preserve it and make it suitable for 21st Century requirements while preserving many of the original art deco features including the terrazzo floor on the second storey.

My favourite part of the building was the main doorway at 443 Delaware Ave which is surrounded by an array of geometric reliefs.
