40 years. 40 projects.

Of the thousands of projects that we have completed in the last four decades, we selected a collection of significant projects that have shaped our practice and influenced the design landscape.

In 1991, the East Hampton Cottage won an AIA Honor Award in Architecture and in the same year, Battery Park City won the AIA Excellence Award in Urban Design. This dichotomy of project types exemplifies our approach to each design assignment: no matter how large or small, history, context and the setting establish the rules of place in each locale where we work.

The following descriptions are a snapshot of our 40 projects.
