Our firm, located on Audubon Street in downtown New Haven, was founded in 1990 by Paul B. Bailey AIA, a 1972 graduate of the Yale School of Architecture, and has since grown into a mid-sized firm of diverse talents, including six registered architects/project managers. In the early 90's, the firm quickly developed a reputation for high quality design work in the areas of master planning for municipal, religious and other non-profit organizations, multi-family housing, the renovation and restoration of historic structures and single family residences. Initially located in a basement on Orange Street in New Haven, the firm moved in 1991 to its current location in the historic McLagon Foundry Building. The office condominium space was totally renovated into an open-space layout which exposed the original historic character and structural components of the 1876 structure. A recent expansion into the adjacent condominium unit has significantly increased our usable space.
