Place and purpose frame our experiences. Our goal as architects, strategists and developers is to shape these fundamental elements into a meaningful vision that lives within the architecture we create. Through a process of discovery, design and dialogue, we infuse clients’ unique needs and desires into structures that enhance how they live their lives. By studying each property and its natural surroundings, we root our work in the environment while translating the local conditions into modern, compelling forms. We focus on how a building performs throughout its entire lifecycle through designing with nature, sourcing local materials and leveraging new technology for smarter, more efficient buildings. Employing a variety of sustainable practices drastically minimizes the impact our work has on the planet and connects the inhabitants of our buildings with nature itself.
“Of all the architects we interviewed, Drew listened the best. He diligently listens to what we hope to accomplish, and does a beautiful job of taking us along throughout the entire process.”
On The Intimacy of Home
“To have somebody come in and design your home, it’s incredibly intimate. When we walk into our townhome now, it feels like us, a true sign of success.”
On Connected Design
“The design is so attuned to nature and the culture of the Catskills. It highlights the natural beauty in the land, even down to the locally sourced materials. The product speaks for itself.”
Collaboration with artists, craftspeople and the design community is essential to our approach. Together, we create connected experiences that excite the senses through architecture of the highest quality and value. We believe that collaboration is the key to creating connected experiences in architecture, design and development. The unique mark of a maker or artist creates a greater sense of purpose, which enriches how we feel and think about a space. From weldors and furniture makers to interior designers, artists and marketers, our collaborators add greater depth to our work and value for our clients. As part of our commitment to growing this community, we established Brick & Wonder, a membership collective built on the idea that collaboration creates more long-term value than simply working on your own.
