NILE is a modernist* design office. The office was started by Nile Greenberg. In 2021 the AIA New York recognized NILE as a winner of New Practices New York. The office recently completed a store for Homer in New York. The exhibition Two Sides of the Border, designed and curated for Tatiana Bilbao, inaugurated at the Yale School of Architecture Gallery and traveled to Aedes Berlin, El Paso Museum of Art and University of Arkansas. The forthcoming book, The Advanced School of Collective Feeling, will be published by Park Books in Spring 2023, co-authored with Matthew Kennedy. He edited the book Two Sides of the Border, published by Lars Müller Publishers. Nile sometimes teaches; he’s been Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia University GSAPP and has given lectures at Cornell University, University of Melbourne, The Cooper Union and University of Colorado. Before founding NILE, Nile Greenberg’s work focused on cultural, public and residential architecture such as the UC Davis Museum of Art, the LA LGBT Center in Los Angeles, and a social housing complex in Washington DC. Nile is a founding partner of ANY with Michael Abel.

The Other House belongs to the world of the alley. This ADU emulates its neighboring garages, but is a small universe of architecture, a high fence forms its boundary, an oversized roof sits on top of it. The rectangular house is positioned to create four distinct outdoor spaces, the entrance porch, the private patio, the living room sun and the event exterior. The interiors articulate the oversized roof, demarcated by a maple datum that creates a sense of order and often acts as a storage system. The Other House proposes a specific way of life: private, outside, quiet, physical.
