Steven Harris Architects is an award winning design firm with extensive and varied experience in both public and private commissions. The office takes a collaborative approach to design, fostering an open exchange of ideas both within the firm and with clients. Since the design process is tailored individually to the client’s program, context, and site, each of the firm’s projects takes on a unique character and appearance.
Each design emerges from a process of constant refinement and dialogue with clients, from initial inquiry to well beyond occupancy. The firm is renowned for impeccably crafted and expertly managed projects. The firm’s work has received numerous AIA and Interior Design Best of Year awards, and Harris and the firm are recognized in Architectural Digest’s AD 100, Elle Décor’s A-List, and the Interior Design Hall of Fame.
The firm’s first monograph, True Life (Princeton Architectural Press, 2010) showcases twenty-five years of acclaimed residential work.
Ongoing projects include a seven star small luxury hotel in Geneva, a large upstate country retreat, townhouses in the West Village, Gramercy Park and Cobble Hill, the renovation of a historic estate in Brookline, MA and an extremely luxe new retail space in St. Barths.
Drawing upon a depth of knowledge and working experience in high end residential design, the firm has considerable skill and a particular fondness for exploring the architectural potential of urban houses and contemporary family life in New York City.
At the same time, the firm has completed projects of all scales in a range of locales worldwide, from California to Connecticut, the Hamptons to Cabo San Lucas, rural upstate New York to Miami Beach, South Africa to Croatia.
