APPROACH
A successful partnership between client and architect is paramount for the creation of an innovative and timeless design.

The foundation for this collaboration is an open-minded approach and ability to carefully listen to each client through all phases of the design and construction process.  This continual conversation allows for each project to proceed along its own creative course, resulting in architecture that is contextual, enduring, and thoughtful of the environment.  By using the most advanced building techniques and sustainable materials, coupled with a meticulous attention to detail, we ensure that each tailored solution represents an exceptional balance of aesthetics, cost and timeliness.

SCALABILITY
The benefit of running a small firm between the Hudson Valley and New York City is that we have had the opportunity to explore projects in a variety of scales. Our main priority with every project, regardless of size, is to meet the needs of each client. Our approach to small jobs is no different than our largest new construction; we work thoroughly and with unparalleled attention to detail. As the firm continues to expand and our experience continues to diversify, we remain committed to improving the built environment through design excellence, collaboration, innovation and dedication to the clients’ programmatic needs.

UNIVERSAL DESIGN
The firm is particularly well-versed in building codes pertaining to the rights and safety of the physically and developmentally disabled. We have ample experience in ADA consultation and implementation for existing structures, particularly in older buildings that require adaptation to new standards.

SUSTAINABILITY
Integral to our design approach and practice is the use of methods and materials that maximize efficiency, minimize energy consumption, and reduce our burden on the earth’s resources. We continually advocate for improved building standards, incorporating green features that are standard practice for Andrade Architecture. Our involvement with LEED design began over a decade ago, working as consultant and project manager on a variety of LEED projects, however sustainable design has been central to our practice far before the implementation of standards. By approaching all projects with environmental sensitivity, along with meeting the needs of our client, Andrade Architecture maintains its commitment to sustainability.
