Steven Harris Architects is an award winning design firm with extensive and varied experience in both public and private commissions. With a collaborative approach to design, their design process is tailored individually to the client’s program, context and site. SHA works closely with its clients to design gorgeous homes that are perfectly tailored to the lives they live.
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.
Besides dozens of NYC-area townhouses and apartments, the firm has designed homes all over the world, in locations as far-flung as South Africa, Mexico, Croatia, and Vietnam. Multi-unit residential, hospitality, and retail are also part the SHA repertoire.
Ongoing projects include a Long Island beach house constructed of glass and board-formed concrete, luxury condominiums in Tribeca and Chelsea, a home for a San Diego car collector overlooking the Pacific Coast, and the renovation of a historic Edward Durrell stone house in upstate New York.
