Urban Pioneering Architecture specializes in custom residential design in New York and New Jersey, from small additions and renovations to new home construction, in a variety of styles from traditional to contemporary. Each of our clients receives the principal’s full attention. We strive to create a distinctive design that maintains budget requirements within a unique and fulfilling environment, specifically tailored to the needs of each client. We have been licensed in New York and New Jersey since 1999 and are LEED Accredited, reflecting our strong commitment to sustainable design. Wherever possible, we look for ways to make the project work within its specific context, whether that means the urban environment of the city, or the natural environment of the world around us. We strive to use renewable resources, environmentally friendly products, and take advantage of the benefits of the local environment, incorporating passive or active solar design where possible.
Established in 1999.
Urban Pioneering Architecture is a small, yet growing boutique architecture and interior design firm located in Manhattan. We combine the talents of professionals trained in architecture, interior design and construction to create a design-build team. Project mangers work on each project from inception to completion, working on the design and construction documents then transitioning to the field to make sure all work is consistent in design intent and quality. This approach ensures project continuity throughout the life of the project, and allows us to control costs from the very beginning, even building into the system efficiencies lost in the traditional architect – contractor relationship, eliminating errors and streamlining the construction documentation process, creating opportunities for savings which we pass directly on to the owner.
