“David Schwartz of Essential Communications is a master at the seamless integration of all the components into the architecture to create an incandescent sound that doesn’t interrupt the design of a space.”
Ed Rawlings
Rawlings Architects 

Cerami helped us with a tough condition in the multi-purpose room. In order to create the right setting we had to have the right acoustics, but we didn’t want to disrupt the wonderful architecture of the room. Together we came up with this concealed panel system that sits behind the arches. They were good partners in the process, very responsive.”
Sylvia Smith
FXFowle 

“The green roof was both the client’s and the public’s favorite part of the Queens Botanical Garden. Conservation Design Forum did a plant selection in terms of seasonal variety and color that really demonstrates what’s possible in a 6-inch soil.”
Julia Nelson
BKSK Architects 

“Because Rouge Tomate is so heavily influenced by the cooking technique, the design of the kitchen was extremely important. Foster Frable proved to be the perfect complement for Rouge Tomate’s desire to create the most well-designed kitchen possible.”
Thomas J. Lozada
Bentel & Bentel 

“Lab design is a science and if you haven’t done it before it can make your head explode. Basically the lab plan component dictates the building and Jacobs Consultancy helped us to understand that at the Weill Research Center. They were great teachers.”
Renny Logan
Richard Meier & Partners 

Lee Weintraub is a great designer, very responsive, very thoughtful. He was able to get the maximum number of uses from a small space, and to involve as many residents as possible.”
William Stein
Dattner Architects 

Robin Key Landscape Design created a really great outdoor room in the rear yard of our West Village townhouse that’s defined by birch trees and a trellis, and this huge vine that was encroaching from the neighbor—instead of cutting it back and eliminating it from the yard, she actually incorporated it into the space.”
Jeffrey Murphy
Murphy Burnham & Buttrick Architects 

“Joe DeCeglie from William Vitacco Associates is helpful in every step of the way. He provides clear interpretations, and professional assistance to help resolve every issue in every phase.”
Stephen Luk
BBG-BBGM 

Viridian helped us on Riverhouse to make sure we were meeting Battery Park City’s energy requirements. We were able to subvert the 60-to-40 masonry-to-glass ratio by showing that a double curtain wall system would be more energy efficient than a traditional masonry wall.”
Brian Slocum
Polshek Partnership Architects

Levien & Company had a really great way of keeping the team going. They kept us together at crunch times, bottlenecks, and tough building conditions.”
Annabelle Selldorf
Selldorf Architects 

Building Conservation Associates are preservation specialists. They helped us to interpret the history of Lion House—the narrative behind it—as well as helped us with the technical issues of disassembling and reassembling different aspects of the building.”
Sylvia Smith
FXFowle 

Aria is doing everything at our Chelsea townhouse: the furniture, the facades—everything. Clive Hawkins just does it on his computer and we take it straight to production. He’s actually a car designer, though superhero is more like it.”
