Alexander Butler | Design Services LLC is a full-service design firm initially founded in 2010 and incorporated in 2013, following almost 15 years in the architectural, interiors, and real estate fields. The firm specializes in the creation of livable spaces, unconstrained by style or methodology, and the work emerges through the confluence of ideas from all those involved in the process; clients, contractors, vendors, even extended family and friends.
Alex has architectural degrees from the University of Virginia and Yale University, and has worked in New York for over seven years for some of the most elite and respected firms in the world, including Robert A.M. Stern Architects, Kohn Pedersen Fox, and GRADE Architecture + Interior Design. A semester in Italy and two years living and working in London have also added meaningful layers to Alex’s architectural perspective.
Most recently at GRADE, Alex was Lead Designer and Project Manager for several residential projects, including a new condo building in TriBeCa, a Townhouse in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, and the full interior architecture of a spec residence in Sagaponack, NY, recently sold for $23m.
AB|DS has completed projects throughout New York City, for a wide range of amazing clients, in a variety of styles and under budgets large and small. Bespoke design, tailored to the client and context, as well as an open working and collaborative process are at the heart of this practice.
