Eva brought her European education to NYC and began her professional career at architecture firms doing commercial and institutional projects. She worked at Swanke Hayden Connell Architects, The Phillips Janson Group (now TPG Architects) and M. Castedo Architects. After becoming a licensed Architect and starting a family, she founded her own firm in 1993. She began focusing on residential and small scale commercial work.
A project starts with the clients, their goals and inclinations charting the path forward to design solutions which are custom tailored in every aspect. While employing responsible green technology and pursuing sustainability is the core of the process, creativity, style and craftsmanship complete it. The projects in Westchester County include both contemporary and classical work, reflecting the inspiring mix of people that make the county their home. Some commissions are located as far as the verdant lands of upstate New York, Massachusetts and Vermont. In contrast, close proximity to NYC provides the firm with the opportunity to work in the greatest city in the world, with its fabulous and unique spaces.
While the art of architecture is the ultimate aim, full services are provided. Constructing reality from ideas requires diverse tools, starting with a roll of sketch paper, transitioning to computer visualization and working closely with budgets, bidders, permit agencies and construction teams. This firm shepherds projects through transitions from blueprints to the built environment.
The transformative power of architecture and the positive impact of good design are of keen interest. Architecture is not about words, even though many can be said about it. It has a language of its own. It has expressions and clues, tone, shouts and whispers, suggestions and statements. There is always a story, sometimes even a novel. Every time we enter architectural work we undergo an experience. And if it is great, it makes for life well-lived.
