The project was built for Joseph Steinmetz, who was a well known photographer from Life Magazine and one of the earliest architectural photographers of Rudolph’s buildings.
The structure’s cantilever panels extended onto the public sidewalk, which supported a flat canopy on top that sheltered the pedestrians.
It went through major design changes after it was built.
The studio was demolished in the 2000’s.
