Marvel Architects

Marvel Architects is dedicated to shaping public space, designing for institutional growth, and expanding economic and creative opportunities for a wide range of clients. Based in New York City, our architects and urban designers integrate the built and natural environments in every project—from infrastructure development and adaptive reuse to master planning, block building, park and waterfront design, as well as multi- and single-family housing. We apply the same meticulous attention to detail to all scales and forms, with the resulting projects and spaces earning our reputation for sensitive and thoughtful design.

Our strength comes from working with a diversity of clients. We have successfully completed projects for mixed-use developers, iconic retail brands, galleries and museums, public and private educational institutions, and city agencies. We have earned a national reputation for designing at the intersection of public and private space, from security bollards on Wall Street to a 550,000SF hotel/condo situated in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Rather than specializing in a “look” or typology, our process consistently uncovers essential qualities of sites and existing structures, and uses them to bring meaning to the new project through rigorous research and analysis.

Our multi-disciplinary studio collaborates throughout the design and construction process to meet our clients’ economic and occupancy requirements, be it to efficiently address an immediate need or develop a long-term phasing and development plan. We are experienced at tackling a variety of challenges with innovative design solutions, as well as transforming ordinary projects into remarkable ones. After more than twenty years working in New York City and across the country, our team has pioneered an entrepreneurial approach to architecture and place-making that has been recognized by more than 60 design and industry awards from peer and client groups.
