This beautiful 1/8" scale internally illuminated model showcases a private residence in the Dutchess County landscape designed by Grandberg & Associates Architects of Mt. Kisco, NY.

Scheduled for construction in 2017, this modern residence was built as a design study, office display and client presentation.

Located directly on the Atlantic Ocean and Lake Takanassee in Long Branch, NJ, this internally illuminated 1/8" scale model was built for the sales office located right on the beachfront.

The Thomas Cole National Historic Site has invited Ryerson Studio to the opening of the New Studio and the 2016 exhibition, Thomas Cole: The Artist as Architect.

We had the pleasure of collaborating with members of the Board of Trustees and staff of Cedar Grove along with the architect of record, John Mesick of Mesick Cohen Wilson Baker Architects to construct a  1" = 1'-0" scale model of  Thomas Cole's studio which was successfully used as the centerpiece of many fundraising events.

We are honored to have been included as part of their team and having had a creative hand in helping to bring back the historic studio of Thomas Cole, founder of the The Hudson River School.

Ryerson Studio recently attended the ribbon cutting inauguration of the Arbab Rustan Guiv Dar-E-Mehr Zoroastrian Temple in Suffern, NY.

We worked very closely with the NDMI Group and the architect, Dinyar Wadia of Wadia Associates to painstakingly construct a 1/8" scale fundraising model which was so successful, we consequently constructed a smaller 1/16" scale travel model which could fit into an overhead luggage compartment for international fundraising.

Below is a testimonial from Edul Daver, the project coordinator for the Dar-E-Mehr:

“The NY Dar-e-Mehr Zoroastrian Temple embarked on a very ambitious project to build a 22,000 sq ft building with a price tag of $ 4.5 Mil. After much debate, about the cost justification, we had Ryerson Studio build a model for us to help in the Fund Raising effort. It was an instant hit and it was a major catalyst to making our fund raising drive successful. In fact it was so successful that we commissioned a second smaller, ‘suitcase’ model which has been around the world a couple of times.

We also used it for the permitting process and the Town committees were so impressed that it facilitated the entire process. We had not thought of this benefit but this alone would have justified the initial cost layout.

We strongly urge people constructing buildings to take advantage of Michael’s model making talents and the benefits it will provide.”
