OUR ARCHITECTS

We're architects that specialize in calmly navigating busy clients through the residential and commercial design-construction process in Westchester County and Metro New York. Our goal is to improve the value, utility and appearance of each property or building we design.

Entering our 19th year with a wide-ranging portfolio of diverse projects and over 400 projects completed to date, we strive to get better, learn more and satisfy the needs of our growing list of happy clients. We nurture our relationships with these clients , consultants, builders and municipalities to make the design-construction process as smooth as possible.

I am a member of the AIA (American Institute of Architects), BOCA (Building Officials and Code Administrators), and USBGC (United States Green Building Council). I was educated at Brandeis University, BFA, City College of NY, BArch and Traveling Nanjing Fellowship, I use my background of fine arts, product design, construction and architectural knowledge both locally and abroad to the satisfaction of  hundreds of customers.

Growing up in a design household in New York City, I helped my father, a furniture designer with building and drafting prototypes as well as designing patterns with my mother, a textile designer. For the past 25 years, my family has lived in Rye, NY .  Our son recently completed his studies Santa Clara University and is working in NYC in the financial world. Our daughter continues her editing excellence in Oakland, and Tess our golden retriever, well she does her best to impersonate a late night lounge singer.  My wife is a force of nature in the non-profit arena and helps the New York Common Pantry serve over 6,000,000 meals per year to NYC's less fortunate.

Beyond architecture- I love boating, playing softball, volleyball, painting watercolors, and serving on the Rye Planning Commission, and most of all, visiting our daughter living in Oakland CA. Our customers are very lucky to have the talents and ambition of my colleagues. We plan and work with you according to your desires to build sensible, great-looking designs.
