10 Reviews
James Wagman Architect, founded in 1999, is an award-winning New York City architecture firm with a reputation for high-performance, sustainable, and contextually-sensitive designs.

We work closely with our clients to develop an understanding of their goals and the function of the space, before translating their ideas into transformative environments that reflect their unique vision. We keep them educated and informed throughout the design and implementation process, taking our cues from them and interpreting their wants and needs in a way that is both functional and modern.

We also look at how a space performs both as a machine and as an energy user. This understanding guides us in creating sustainable, pragmatic, innovative, and comprehensive solutions for a variety of design challenges. JWA is an advocate of Passive House design and practices as we consider it a cost effective way to be energy efficient.

Our firm is currently working on a range of Passive House and Green Building projects as well as numerous apartment, townhouse, and office renovations and restorations in New York City.

In addition to notable residential and commercial work, we have completed a number of institutional projects, including the Horace Mann School in Riverdale, NY, The Blue School in New York City and ongoing work at The Packer Collegiate Institute in Brooklyn Heights. These projects are done in-house by our staff under our institutional division, Hudson Studio Architects.
