AWARD WINNING ARCHITECT FOR 36 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 re-modelings, 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.
