I started my practice in 1986 after ten years of apprenticeship with architectural firms in Boston and award-winning Centerbrook Architects in Connecticut, working on a variety of projects including the King Khalid Military City in Saudi Arabia, public libraries, facilities for IBM, a new student center at Colby College, and private residences from Washington DC to Cape Cod. It was during this time that I was first drawn to the challenges and rewards of residential architecture. Since opening my practice I have personally served my clients throughout all phases of their projects because I believe my personal attention to my client’s needs is the key for getting the best results. This is especially true for residential architecture that operates frequently at a very individual and intimate level. I recognize that my residential clients want their personal demands and preferences attended to with care. In 2006 I partnered with a talented builder (and longtime friend) to form a design-build company, Essex Squared LLC. Prior I had seen that my most successful projects resulted when teams of owner, architect and builder were formed early on. In essence that team approach is the design-build model. With decreasing frequency I use the design-bid-build process that is familiar to many. My preference is for design-build with its many advantages: cost control, efficiency, and design continuity to name some. Design-build allows a much less stressful approach by balancing owner expectations for a design with its costs from early conceptual sketches to construction-ready documents. In any project my approach is to work with my clients to find the right design for them whether for me it means working in a style of their preference, blending a addition seamlessly into an existing house, or creating a design that is unique to their needs and their site. I want my clients look to me for expert advice and guidance while they feel welcome to be active participants in the design of their homes if they so choose. Ultimately, I want to create houses with lasting beauty, and that I believe comes from taking advantage of opportunities to weed out the unnecessary in order to strengthen the essence of a design. And, houses should be well built with good materials as lasting tributes to the efforts made to create them. Whitney Huber, AIA

AWARD WINNING ARCHITECT FOR 35 YEARS In 2015 Bruce Nagel was selected as one of the permanently inductees into DAN'S PAPERS - "BEST OF THE BEST HALL OF FAME" as the best architect in the Hamptons after winning this award each year for the past 20 years. Each residence is a unique project, because we place primary emphasis on a client-related solution, on its particular fit and suitability. As an initial step, we request our residential clients to record a written program describing their goals for the project and eliciting their wants and needs in as much detail as they wish. While this program is inevitably altered in the course of working out a solution, the particular tenor of my client's initial program remains a keynote throughout our design process. We want each project to acquire through this program keynote a strong, clear idea, which is consistent with its organization. We strive thereby to functionally satisfy our client's detailed needs and to give them something more, something that only architecture can give them, as well. In our original work on new projects, we have a strong design aesthetic, but we are also particularly respectful of existing vocabularies in performing remodelings, where we direct our efforts toward producing sensitively integrated designs. We will design a house on all levels, from its site to internal details and appointments, and an interior from its general layout and design to the selection of paint colors, fabrics and furnishings. While we prefer in doing so to provide my clients with full-services from program analysis through design, specification, contract negotiation and the finish of construction administration and interiors, we are prepared to offer limited services suited to a particular project. Our work includes country houses and year-round residences, beach houses and other second homes, extensions, interior remodelings, apartments and townhouses ranging from the very small to the very large and located not only from Manhattan to Montauk, but in Connecticut, New Jersey, Washington, D.C. and beyond. Ultimately, as our philosophy states, no matter how large or how small are my residential projects, or what type, or where they are located, we strive to have happy clients who like their homes and use them well.
