This full-floor loft with a new rooftop addition and terrace is one of several projects now under construction. AFA’s design for this gut renovation features a porous terracotta-screened cube that organizes the otherwise open interior. A new steel-and-wood stair provides access to the outdoor space.

Construction is moving along for this house on Long Island's east end. Perched on a bluff overlooking the water, this will be a serene year-round retreat. The design incorporates regional materials and minimal massing in response to the fragile location while passive house strategies such as natural ventilation will create a low impact building.

This new seaside house on Martha’s Vineyard was conceived as a casual and comfortable modern cottage. The home is inspired by the spirit of Victorian beachside cottage vernacular with an overlay of Scandinavian modernism and responds to the sundrenched light and calming views of the beach and meadow. We are thrilled to share a few images here!


Perched on a bluff overlooking the water, this house on Long Island’s East End will be a serene year-round retreat. The living spaces are designed to open outwards toward cool breezes and lapping waves during summer, or orient inwards toward warm, soft cedar paneling and a cozy two-sided fireplace in winter. A green roof will provide visual reward and environmental benefit. See more here!


After an intense but rewarding year of design, construction will commence in the first quarter of 2016 for this investment firm workplace project!

This renovation will transform a 35,000 square-foot double-height space in a historic west side building into a large, collaborative workplace. With its slatted wood screens and glass partitions, geometric carpeting and wool Eastern rugs and fabrics, the space sheds commercial vocabulary for a warmer and more inviting environment suggestive of a library or contemporary loft residence more than an investor’s command center.
