About The Firm

Partners For Architecture  was inaugurated in 2000 with the dedication to establish an architectural firm that provides comprehensive and environmentally sensitive architectural services.

The very foundation of Partners for Architecture is the desire to create a built environment that is respectful to its surroundings and does not view our planet’s resources as being ‘there for the taking’. From a conference table built from scrap steel, to an office space exposing beautiful natural materials previously hidden by our society’s habits, the environment is not something we talk about, it is something about which we care passionately and reinforce in our own office space.

Beyond the environment, our ‘workshop’ is one which eliminates the common chain of commands found in large firms, our organization is known for a fresh, uncomplicated and straightforward hands-on approach, with a principal completely involved in every aspect of your project.

Partners for Architecture is very involved in the sustainable community in the Stamford area, ranging from chairing the Mayor’s energy task force to organizing the very casual and thought provoking Stamford Greendrinks.
