PRACTICE Philosophy

WE ARE A BOUTIQUE ARCHITECTURAL PRACTICE THAT BELIEVES A BUILDING SHOULD HIGHLIGHT AND ACCENTUATE THE CULTURAL, PHYSICAL AND SOCIAL PARTICULARITIES OF PLACE IN WHICH IT DEVELOPS. WE FOSTER RICHNESS OF PLACE THROUGH OUR CLOSE INTERPRETATATION OF THE BASIC ELEMENTS OF A PROJECT: THE CHARACTER OF A CLIENT OR INSTIUTION AND THEIR WISHES, THE UNIQUE ATTRIBUTES OF A SITE AND THE PROJECT’S SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS. WE INCORPORATE A PLACE’S COMPLEXITIES INTO A RICH FABRIC FROM WHICH FULLER LIVING AND RICHER SOCIAL PARTICPATION ARE POSSIBLE. IN EVERY PROJECT, WE REMAIN OPEN TO A DESIGN DIALOGUE THAT FOSTERS UNEXPECTED AND DYNAMIC SPACES AND PLACES.

WE ARE A FULL SERVICE DESIGN FIRM WITH BUILT WORK THROUGHOUT THE GREATER NEW YORK CITY REGION. WE HAVE HAD PROJECTS REVIEWED AND APPROVED BY MANY GOVENRMENTAL AGENCIES, INCLUDING THE NYC DEPT OF BUILDINGS, NYC LANDMARKS PRESERVATION COMMISSION, NYC BOARD OF STANDARDS AND APPEALS, AND PLANNING BOARDS AND DEPTS OF BUILDINGS IN MANY OTHER JURISDICTIONS THROUGHOUT IN NEW YORK AND NEW JERSEY.

WE PRIDE OURSELVES ON BRINGING INVENTIVE IDEAS TO OUR PROJECTS WHILE OFFERING PRACTICAL GUIDANCE THROUGH EVERY ASPECT OF DESIGN, APPROVAL AND CONSTRUCTION. WE ARE VERY COMFORTABLE ADAPTING TO THE UNIQUE CIRCUMSTANCES EACH PROJECT PRESENTS AND ALWAYS TREAT LIMITS AS OPPORTUNITIES.

HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN COMMITTED TO MAINTAINING A DIVERSE ARCHITECTURAL PRACTICE WITH AN EYE TOWARD CONTEMPORARY RELEVANCE WHICH SIMULTANEOUSLY MAINTAINS THE IMPORTANCE OF SUSTAINABILITY AND OF PHYSICAL, INDIVIDUALIZED PLACE-MAKING. HE SEEKS TO MAINTAIN AWARENESS OF THE ONGOING LIVED EXPERIENCE OF A BUILDING’S INHABITANTS AND TO ENGAGE THEM IN DYNAMIC PUBLIC PARTICIPATION. FOR DAVID, THE PRIMARY QUESTION OF ENGAGEMENT AND PARTICIPATION REMAINS AT THE HEART OF BOTH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE WORKS, AND EVERY PROJECT, ON EVERY SCALE, ASPIRES TO OPERATE AS A LIVING INSTITUTION.
