How we think

We are WBE certified and pride ourselves of being a diverse and international design studio. We aim to achieve design efficiencies that express themselves in optimized modulations, resulting in innovative structures and original shapes. Archi-Tectonics is an expert in LEED design and notable work includes the recently completed 33 Vestry in Lower Manhattan, the historic Brewster Building in Soho and the iconic and much awarded 497 Greenwich Street, also in New York. Retail Projects include three Ports1961 stores in Paris, London and Shanghai, other commercial work include restaurants, galleries, offices and medical offices. Archi-Tectonics was Lead Architect in the bottom-up, urban master plan for Downtown Bogota, for a new culture & hospitality neighborhood in Yulin, China, and for the Echo Bay waterfront development of New Rochelle, NY.


Publications on Archi-Tectonics include three monographs -“Winka Dubbeldam, Architect” [010 Publishers, Rotterdam, 1996], AT-INdex [Princeton Press, NYC, 2006], Archi-Tectonics, a Monograph [DAAB publishers, 2010], a fourth monograph is on the way by Actar [2019] - as well as countless features in American and International Architecture & Design Periodicals.

What we believe

We are not limited to a specific program or style; rather, we develop a unique identity for each project. Our design teams conduct rigorous project-specific research and as a result, our clients receive customized experiences and optimal spatial formations. We are passionate about the use of smart systems and sustainable materials to create healthy and energy-efficient environments.

Our Work

To date, we have completed several ground-up buildings. Optimal spatial formations include: GW497 (80,000 sf residential building in New York City), American Loft (60,000 sf residential building in Philadelphia), GT House (2,500 sf residence in Upstate New York), Dub Residence (3,000 sf prefab house in Germany), a 3,500 sf Chelsea townhouse, and V33 Condominiums (also in New York City). Internationally, we have built several commercial spaces, such as the Ports1961 stores in Paris and Shanghai and the Netherlands Architecture Institute ground floor in Rotterdam. New York City units include the Gear magazine offices (1999), the Duggal Digital Headquarters (2000), the Netherlands Board of Conventions and Tourism (2009), and the Moooi Headquarters (2015).

Exhibitions include "The Unprivate House", a MoMA exhibit (1999) and the MoMA PS1 ‘Young Architects’ exhibition (2001), the WTC proposals exhibition at Max Protetch Gallery in NYC (2001), and two Venice Biennale [2002 & 2004].
