Founded in 1995, Fraerman Associates Architecture has consistently promoted excellence in design through its classic approach to architecture while reflecting the distinct individuality of each client. Understanding the lifestyle challenges facing contemporary families, the firm's work concisely distills clients' often complex requisites with unique and elegant expression. The exquisitely detailed, single-family residences are characterized by tranquil, light-filled spaces layered as processional 'events', each one unfolding into the next. The effect is a fluidity that melds the interior with the exterior while energizing the entire environment.
