Established in 1998, the office of Andre Tchelistcheff Architects bases its practice on conceptual refinement, attention to craftsmanship and detail, and stylistic fluency. The work of the practice spans a wide range of commissions including new homes, townhouse renovations and additions, offices, showrooms, hotels, and institutional buildings. Working closely with our clients, we develop resonant and elegant design solutions best suited to the specific location as well as the historical, financial, and programmatic parameters of each project.
