Our Manhattan-based architectural practice was established with the premise that what we do should reflect who we are, and that each building communicates the values of those organizations or individuals who are involved with its creation. Our practice focuses on working with people who share in our beliefs that buildings should be well-crafted, efficient, elegant, and dignified. Our varied experience in different building types and scales has only reinforced our notion that good architecture is anchored in understanding the uniqueness of a building's purpose and surroundings.  

Prior to founding the practice, Maurice Gagnon worked at Rafael Vinoly Architects and Thomas Phifer and Partners. He was a senior architect on several high profile projects, including 432 Park Avenue, a 1,400 foot tall luxury high-rise condominium in Manhattan, and the Corning Museum of Glass North addition in Corning, NY. Earlier in his career he led the design efforts for a number of award-winning buildings in New England. He continues to mentor younger architects as a member of the AIA, and is a member of the Architecture League of New York.
