About Us

Michael K Chen Architecture is an architecture practice providing innovative and superbly crafted work for clients seeking thoughtful and considered design. We have experience designing and building at a diverse range of scales and bring an ultra-refined sensibility and attention to detail to projects ranging from individual micro apartments to entire buildings. Our approach is deeply informed by curiosity and a love of tinkering, of drawing, of discourse, and of making. Our methods and capabilities are at the leading edge of design, analysis, manufacturing, and construction, but we strive to produce exceptional experiences, intricately choreographed spaces, and works that are unexpected, hyper-useful, intelligent, and full of delight. MKCA serves a diverse and international client base. We are based in New York City and work across the United States and worldwide. The office’s work and research have been widely exhibited and published including in The New York Times, Architectural Digest, Dwell, Interior Design, Metropolis, and in many publications in Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia.
