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.

Our collective wealth of design and planning experience, built across a rich diversity of project and building types, energizes all of our work.  We are well-versed in the ways that connectivity, location, market pressures, sustainability, and other elements play into the unique matrix that each project represents.  We have gained insight into what has historically worked and what hasn’t, and can take an educated look into the future to anticipate needs not yet evident.  This adds enormous substance to our work.
