The work on which we have built our reputation is first and foremost about collaboration. Our clients are our partners, their missions our own. Since the founding of Elkus Manfredi Architects in 1988, we have been privileged to form long-term relationships with many of the nation’s most distinguished developers, corporations, and institutions, who have given us the opportunity to shape some of the most important planning and design projects undertaken across the country. As important as smart management and a savvy, experienced design team, the confidence of our clients at the center of the process has always been an essential ingredient of our firm’s success.
We are founded on the conviction that the quality of our environment regularly and significantly impacts the quality of our lives; and recognizes the energy and environmental impact that can result from the design and construction of architectural and urban environments. We aim to reduce negative impacts and create positive results from our daily work and our professional practice. Accordingly, we signed on to the AIA 2030 Commitment and are working towards the goal of carbon-neutral buildings by the year 2030. The firm is also a corporate member of the U.S. Green Building Council and integrates sustainable and regenerative design strategies into all of our projects.
